Trying to find people who do not want to be found is not easy. The internet makes it easier to find someone, but it is rare that the average citizen will be successfully finding someone who does not want to be found. Your best chance for success is hiring a professional who specializes in finding people who don’t want to be found.
What is Skip Tracing?
In the private investigation industry, a “Skip Trace Investigation” is the fact of finding a missing person. It refers to “tracing” a person who has “skipped” town. In a broader sense, skip tracing is commonly used to find anyone who has defaulted on a debt. The client could be a business owed the debt or a collection agency, but the skip tracer can also be hired by individuals seeking personal debts. Skip tracing is used by law enforcement to find suspects or witnesses in criminal actions and by attorneys in civil actions. Private Citizens hire skip tracers for reasons such as locating a parent defaulting on child support or tracking down the owner of a company.
Let the Pros Handle It
Skip tracing is an art and it takes many years of experience to get it right. An experienced skip tracer can find just about anyone. Avoid all those online “Find Anyone Anywhere” services. These companies simply scan public databases to present information you could get yourself.
The only advantage is you get your result quicker. For the best skip tracing you need a private investigator. Not only do you get years of experience in locating missing persons, but you get access to information you wouldn’t be able to get otherwise. As a private investigator, we have access to many databases of information that is not opened to the public or an online service. Skip tracing fees can vary between $125- $500 depending on the difficulty of the job.
