My firm receives between 10 and 15 calls per day from people looking to locate friends, a missing family member, or reunite with a lost love. Whatever the circumstances are the decision to find someone is an important step. Over 15 years ago, we launched 888USUNITE as an alternative to conducting an individual’s own personal search to locate lost friends and family members.
With reports of missing persons increasing over the past 25 years, from roughly 150,000 in 1980 to about 900,000 in 2010, starting the search may appear daunting. The truth is you can find 50% of people on your own. One of the first questions we ask clients is what they have done thus far to search on their own. Most people have simply tried Google or Facebook search, but it rarely goes far beyond that.
We often recommend that before hiring a private investigation service you utilize the free resources available at www.888USUNITE.com. We have listed the best online resources we recommend to use when trying to find people on your own. Most are free, but some charge a nominal fee.
Additional resources on finding a missing person: please check out Chapter 2 of InvestigatorConfidential.com, my free online e-book.
In case you can’t locate the person in question on your own, call 888USUNITE. Our proprietary technology, owned and operated by my firm, is based on constantly updated private database information from public websites, public records, search engines, and other resources. Since its launch in 1997, the service has assisted in the search for thousands of relatives, friends, and former love interests throughout all 50 states.
The 888USUNITE search process begins when the client provides one of the following criteria: the lost individual’s name, date of birth, social security number, or last known address over the past 15 years. Families save a vast amount of time and energy by entrusting the search to a system that is recognized by the U.S. court system at the federal, state, and local levels. Our office staff of former supervisory federal agents examines the findings from the database to locate the lost individual.
In the highly unusual circumstance that 888USUNITE cannot locate a lost friend or family member; we will sign a declaration, prepared by the client’s attorney, stating that no additional amount of money or time would help to locate the individual.
With the motto, “If we can’t find them, they won’t be found,” we mean business.
If you have a challenging case or can’t find the person on your own, please contact 888USUNITE or me for more information.
