About two weeks ago, we got a call from Sarah, who wanted us to locate her paternal grandfather.
Sarah was kind and thoughtful to write a review of our efforts, and include a photograph of her and her grandfather.
From November through Christmas, we get about 40-50 calls per week – inquiring about locating all sorts of individuals. They range from disconnected family members, high school sweethearts, military friends, college buddies, former co-workers and neighbors.
We find about 98.4% of the people we look for.
Is there someone in your life that you miss dearly or you have just become disconnected from?
Would you be willing to spend $69 for our staff to access one of the world’s largest databases of information to help locate that person?
$69 is the same price from the television ads that we ran in 1997. Today, the regular price of this service is $350.
Through December 31, 2018, we will honor the $69 price when you contact us via the martinpi.com website and mention this offer.
Do you ever wonder what happened to that guy you dated back in high school and college that you just knew was “the one” before your careers took you in different directions? Do you have a lost love that you think about every day, just wondering what ever happened to them, what they are doing…
During the 2015 holidays, I was asked to locate a young man named Michael and try to get him help for his addiction problems. I initially turned down the case, but the boy’s grandfather persuaded me otherwise. His plea was enhanced by showing me a photo of the 16-year old in a football uniform. The football uniform was from the same high school my son graduated. It seemed like it was meant to be.
In September 2016, I received a call from Michael on my cell phone. He was doing well and had been sober for nine months. He wanted to go to lunch when he returned from another state where he was in rehab. I reminded him it was his turn to buy since I had treated him at McDonald’s the day he was found. He laughed but politely agreed.
Have you become disconnected from a friend or family member and want to see them for the holidays? If so, we are offering a free search and locate offer for a limited time (see below). Even if you are on the fence because someone wronged you, reaching out to the person may save a life. At the very least, it might help mend a relationship you probably both want healed.
Recently a New Mexico couple made national headline news this past week by making their 16-year-old son stay in a tent which was pitched in the parent’s backyard as a form of punishment. Opinions were all over the board about this, but trust me: Punishment like this does not work.
Boot camps and work ranches that focus on breaking teens like wild horses only make things worse. You need to get to the core of the behavioral problem, and like anything else in life that is worthwhile: It takes a lot of time and work.
Our case of the week was a fairly routine locate case for a lost son, but it had a unique twist: The participants in the case are some of the oldest we have ever worked for.
My case of the week involved finding and helping a 24 year-old girl with a drug problem. It all started when I spoke with a medical professional here in Orange County, who told me he had received a disturbing call from one of his daughter’s friends, Rachel.
