Skip tracing simply refers to searching for someone who apparently left town. You may want to locate a person for any number of reasons, but they are not readily found. There are several things you may think about doing to locate this person. If the individual is not evading your search, they may have left a forwarding address at the post office. A neighbor or a friend may know where they can be located as well. However, if a person does not wish to be found, you are not likely to have success. That’s where our skip tracing services come in.

Private Investigators Can Help You Skip Trace Someone You Need to Find

When an attempt to find someone has failed, you need to hire the services of a private investigator. You may notice certain companies offering skip tracing services, but unless they specifically state they are a private investigation service and have the credentials to back it up, they are likely a debt collection company. Although they do have certain methods that go beyond what an average person can do, their services are limited at best. It is more effective to go directly to a private investigation service. We have a wide range of tools and methods that are used to locate someone who has apparently left town. Our services are so thorough that collection agencies will use our detective skills to find someone. We can even determine if an individual is no longer living.

Not All Data is Freely Accessible

Not only do individuals not have access to a lot of the information we have, many businesses do not have this information either. Our services are used by collection agencies to locate those who are attempting to avoid paying their debts. Attorneys and law firms also use our services to locate people who are not paying their child support or those people who are being sued and need to be served notice of a court hearing.

We Do Field Work

It is always tempting to start looking for information on the Internet. After all, your computer and Internet connection is likely right in front of you. The problem is that the information on where a person is located is limited. In some situations, even the data we have access to may not tell the entire story.

Our detectives have years of experience hitting the pavement and interviewing people. Sometimes the only way to find someone is by interviewing people face to face to learn when an individual was last seen, and construct a timeline from the information. By talking to others, a person can often be tracked down. It is common for people to believe someone has left town, but the fact is, they never went anywhere. They are simply hiding out with no official address. If this is the case, our private investigators can still find them.

Do not spend too much of your time searching for someone. If the person you’re looking for does not want to be found, then you are likely to need our help. You can contact us and tell us the specifics of your case, including who you are looking for and why you need to locate them. Combined with all of the information you have on them, we will let you know how we can help.
