Derek Seehausen, before his disappearance in 2014.

Private Investigator Offers $25,000 Reward for Locating Derek Seehausen (2019)

August 5, 2019 will mark the fifth anniversary year that Derek Seehausen disappeared into the Los Angeles night. He has not been heard from or seen since that day. The case has haunted me personally and is one of the most perplexing of my 50 year investigative career.

I am offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to finding Derek or physical evidence supporting his death.

Madeleine McCann, pictured here at 3-years-old in 2007, has been missing since then.

12 years later: The Madeleine McCann case may be one of the most poorly investigated

Over the past twelve years, I have given a handful of interviews about this case and written on particulars of the investigation. At one point, the family’s representatives considered us as an agency to investigate the case. I do wish we had been selected as the lead agency, and I often wonder what difference we could have made in this investigation.

Here’s what I would recommend for the case now.

Be your own pet detective: How to find your lost pet

You can be your own pet detective: How to find your lost pet

As the president of a private investigative agency with 5 offices and 22 investigators, we regularly get calls from people that want us to track down and find missing or lost pets. I am very sympathetic, but I will not take your money or your case.

The reality is that you don’t need a private investigator. When it comes to finding a lost pet, you honestly have the ability to do everything a PI can do.

Locate people, find missing persons, runaways and old friends

Finding friends & family for the holidays

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.

Finding veterans addicted to heroin

Finding veterans addicted to heroin

This week we completed a case which involved locating a veteran of the U.S. armed forces that was addicted to heroin. (This is actually the 16th of similar cases like this so far in 2016.) The case was successful – meaning we got the person into detox and then into a rehabilitation program. We have found many more, but the lure of the drugs is too powerful for some to stop. They remain on the street chasing powder.

Michael Ryan Peterson missing person case, 2015

Missing person case: Resolution for Christmas

Dozens of people expressed interest in the Michael Ryan Peterson runaway case. We had about 30 missing person cases like this in 2015. Some were a little tougher and unfortunately, there are three cases where we still haven’t the missing person.

Those cases keep you up at night.

A couple days ago, I received three photos from Michael’s grandparents, who visited him today in Utah. Above is one of them. What a great Christmas present for all three.
