If you are looking for a missing person to no avail, then you have come to the right place. Missing persons searches can get complicated, and police will not conduct a missing persons search until after 24 hours. They will also only conduct a search if they feel the disappearance is suspicious. This may leave you with may questions unanswered, and you may need to seek help from an outside source.

A private investigator will help you on your search to find a missing person. Since every case is different, it will require different means of investigations. When looking for a missing person, it is best to call the police to make sure there is not an active search going on in the area. Here are some of the steps to take on your own when conducting a search:


  • Always ask permission before searching anyone’s property
  • Make small search teams of about 8-10 people
  • Do not touch any evidence that is found at the scene
  • Separate a map of the area into grids and search each grid
  • If you find evidence tag it with something bright colored and call the police
  • Send out flyers around the area of the missing person


If you have already conducted a search with no leads, then it is time to call a private investigator. The private investigator will look at social media, any electronic devices used, and where they were last seen. They will look at any video cameras to determine where they may have headed, and will look for evidence to lead them to the missing person.
