Lost Touch? A Private Investigator Can Help You Reconnect.

Sometimes it takes a little extra help.

Since the advent of social distancing, people have been finding ways to keep in touch with friends and loved ones they may not be able to visit in person. Many individuals find themselves wanting to reconnect with people from the past to check on their welfare or for other reasons.

If you’ve exhausted outside resources trying to find someone—like Googling their name, browsing social media, or checking in with mutual contacts—and you still can’t find the individual you’re looking for, it might be time to consider the services of a licensed private investigator.

A licensed private investigator can help you with constraints that you may not have considered such as time, distance, and potential legal concerns. In short, the right P.I. can accomplish your task quickly.

You may be looking to connect with someone who you have not been in touch with for a while, like a neighbor or a classmate from high school or a college sweetheart. In the years that have passed, many things might have changed—including the person’s name and location. This doesn’t make finding the individual any easier.

If you’re not sure of a person’s whereabouts, distance can be a daunting problem. If a person is not a US citizen or has potentially left the country, records of the individual may be sparse or difficult to find and access. Language barriers and different forms of record keeping overseas can make it especially difficult to locate a person, especially if they don’t have a strong online presence. U.S. based database search services are limited to the United States.

Finally, legal obstacles can be the toughest barrier to finding a person. No matter how much you want to reconnect, sometimes a person just does not want to be found. They may decide to protect or disguise their identities. In these instances, it can really take all the resources and creativity a private investigator has at their disposal to find the information you are seeking.
