Our Techniques

Personal and Digital Investigation

When tasked with finding a missing person, our first step is to conduct personal and digital investigations. We gather information provided by our clients to determine the best approach for the case. Clients can provide online information, such as social media accounts and emails, which can serve as valuable starting points for the investigation.

Interviewing for Missing Persons

Our investigators utilize interviewing techniques to gather information from individuals who may know the missing person's whereabouts. We conduct interviews in various formats, including in-person, over the phone, or via the Internet. Depending on the circumstances, we may conduct overt or covert interviews to ensure the subject is not alerted to the investigation.


In cases where we have known locations or associates of the missing person, monitoring becomes an essential tool. We rely on complete and up-to-date information about the missing person, including photos and vehicle details, to monitor effectively. This process requires considerable time and resources, but it can yield crucial leads in the investigation.
