Skip Trace – Locate
Skip Trace – Locate is an investigation to find a missing person. These investigations are commonly used to track down defendants who have missed court appearances or skipped bail, locate individuals who need to be served with legal documents, or track down a person on behalf of a debtor.
Rain City Investigations can use investigative tools and expertise to attempt to locate them for you. Unlike simple data finders, I can verify that the individual located is the correct target of the investigation. Additional services are available to physically verify that the party is currently living at an identified address.
What is Involved?
After gathering pertinent information and clear goals and objectives from the client, I will employ investigative techniques required to get an accurate location for the individual. This can involve records research, surveillance, background investigation, and interviewing known family, friends, and associates. I will access databases for valid and up to date records, verifying all information from the results. Surveillance is often employed to understand the individual’s habits, gather accurate information on where they are living and working, what locations they frequent, and what activities they are involved in. Finally, a background investigation may be conducted to better understand the identified individual.
Many people assume law enforcement agencies take care of locating individuals, especially in matters of the law and debt. The truth is that most agencies have more pressing matters of public safety to tend to, and those who seek resolution and answers will turn to a competent professional.
A word of caution: While online locater websites appear to be an easy way to get the information yourself, if you want accurate and verified information you’re authorized to share and can be used in a legal matter, you will need to work with a private investigator. These online sites openly state the information may be inaccurate and/or incomplete, that an individual can have their information removed from the website, and that the records can be unclear and confusing.
