Missing Persons & Skip Tracing

While many people assume that law-enforcement agencies take care of finding fugitives and other such problems, the truth is that most agencies are overwhelmed with work. If you want a debtor or a criminal found, you may have to do so yourself. Hiring Mitchell Confidential for a skip trace is far more effective, since our investigators will work until the subject you're seeking found. Plus, Mitchell Confidential can use techniques that are not available to law enforcement agencies. For example, we are not restricted by regulations or search warrants. We can simply find and recover the person in question.

Skip Tracing

Surveillance: Investigators may observe certain homes where the person being sought has been known to live.

Background checks: Investigators wishing to apprehend a fugitive or debtor will often run background checks in order to figure out a targets past habits. In many cases, this can lead investigators right to their target.

Interviews and questioning: Professional investigators will often speak with those who know the subject well. They may try to convince a fugitives family that the fugitive should turn himself or herself in, or they may try to get acquaintances to simply slip up and reveal a subjects whereabouts.

Impersonations and traditional investigative work: Investigators  may pose as a delivery person or someone else in order to get close to a subject. They may also spend hours researching in order to find where someone is most likely to be hiding.

Informants: Many private investigation professionals have a network of informants who work for them. These informants will often find out information quickly by talking to their own contacts.

Missing Persons

One of the big problems with police-led missing persons searches is simply that the term missing persons is so narrow. Police will only begin looking for a missing child at a specific amount of time after the child was last seen and by that time, it may be too late if the child has been kidnapped by a pedophile or child killer. Police are also reluctant, due to thinning resources, to search for people who voluntarily left home or for those who live on the streets. Even in a police-led missing person search, police will stop looking after a certain amount of time and will declare the case a cold case.

Find the missing Link!

Skip tracing is also sometimes called debtor or fugitive recovery. It is basically an investigative technique that traces or finds skips or people who have skipped out on their financial or legal obligations. Skip tracing can help you get owed money back or can help ensure that a dangerous criminal finds his or her way back to court
