Missing Heirs, Debtors, Skips, Missing Persons, Witnesses
We have over 30 years of experience in locating hard to find people. From siblings separated by the holocaust to a potential witness mentioned in a local newspaper article published more than 10 years before we got the case. We have found people in Austria , Australia, Canada, England , France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Venezuela and of course the United States. Google, and the internet or inexpensive web sites can be a great place to start if you are just casually interested in finding an old friend or acquaintance. However, if you have exhausted those resources and need the services of a professional we are here to help. The key to our success in locating people is anticipating and early adoption of the latest technologies while simultaneously using human intelligence skills where databases fail. While on-line sources are frequently a key to locating someone, there is much original source information that is not accessible on-line but still resides in dusty files or in someone’s head. Or simply put, we know how to ask people where someone is in a way that gets the answer our clients need. For those instances where you must demonstrate due diligence in locating an individual, we are happy to be of service with:

Missing Persons and estranged family members.
Long lost relatives, “surprise siblings”, birth parents, a family member you haven’t spoken to in 20 years because of a fight, slight, divorce or a lifestyle. Life events open people up to the idea of a reconciliation e.g. birth, illness, a death in the family, a child’s question about family history, a family reunion. Not only can we help to locate the party in question, we can act as a go between to negotiate a reconciliation.
