Should I Hire a Private Investigator to Find Someone?

If you are trying to find someone, it goes without saying that the more information you have - the better. Unfortunately, in many cases there isn't a lot of information to work from and that is when trying to find someone can be a difficult, time consuming, and frustrating experience. Perhaps you are trying to find a biological relative you have lost touch with. Or maybe there is an old friend - or flame - who you wish you could regain contact with. Other times, the reasons are more prescient, such as needing to find a witness or to serve papers. While the internet can provide a certain amount of free information, there are certain circumstances when making the decision to hire a private investigator to find someone is the best option.
