Why hire a Private Investigator for missing people?

Can a Private Investigator really trace a missing person?

When someone goes missing it can be devastating, so it’s important you know where to find help. In those cases where the police may not be able to help, a private investigator can often hold the answers.

Reasons People Go Missing

People go missing for a range of reasons including:

• Family disputes
• Money problems
• Mental health problems
• Fear of confrontation
• Abuse

Sometimes, someone may have gone into hiding because they have done something, not necessarily criminal, but that they are ashamed of. They might just need someone to reach out and tell them that everything’s going to be okay, but of course, you can only do that if you’re able to find out where they are. That’s where a private investigator can come into their own. They can trace the person and allow you to make the decision to contact them or not, depending on what you find out.

Won’t the Police Help?

In some cases, the police are there to help. However, in many situations, if they have no indication that the person is in any danger or poses a danger to others, their resources have to be spent elsewhere. This is often true of missing adults, as the police tend to take the view that grown people can do what they want and go where they want. This is correct but you may still want to know for your own peace of mind that the person in question is safe, well, and in no distress. For many people, it’s the complete lack of contact or information that can be the most upsetting. A private investigator could relieve that stress.

A private investigator can use their years of experience in analysing information and evidence to trace someone, even if that person has made it intentionally difficult to be found. This helps those who need to pass on important correspondence, find long, lost family members, or in the sad case that estranged family members need to be informed of illness or death in the family.

Long lost family

Long lost family member? A Private Investigator can help

Even with the prominence social media has in our lives, it can be hard to track down someone you have little information on. Luckily, our dedicated team of Private Investigators can help you find a long lost family member, whether it be a cousin, sister, uncle or parent. Here’s how we can help.

Emotional distance

Having emotions run high can sometimes squander and inhibit your ability to find out information. A Private Investigator operates on a professional basis and, as they are not connected to the lost family member in question, they can remain free of the extreme emotions you may feel if personally searching, such as anger or upset. This isn’t to say that they won’t get invested in your case, though – they will.

Experience in location

Attempting to locate a lost family member can be emotionally exhausting and incredibly time-consuming. So why not hire someone that does it as their job? Not only this, but Private Investigators have refined experience and knowledge of the location that they’re working within, making their search far more efficient.

Access to classified records

Private Investigators have access to records and data collections that aren’t made readily available to the public. So, if you have a feeling that a family member is lost and/or may be missing, hiring a Private Investigator to help find them will widen your search into previously unknown horizons.

Confidentiality and respect

In some cases, it may be that the family member you are looking for wishes to avoid being found. Whether it’s because of previous tricky situations at home, or more serious family disputes, Private Investigators respect the contexts that they are given and keep everything confidential. Here at PIUK, we have a Data Protection Licence which reinforces the discreet nature of our work.
