Case Study: Locate People
Los Angeles Lost Loves
A major metropolitan newspaper in Los Angeles hired us after reading an LA Times newspaper article which featured our work.
We met at our Los Angeles office. For an upcoming Valentine’s Day article, the editor gave us a list of people to find – all former lovers who had become “lost”.
Our private investigators located and reunited 5 couples (all of whom were not currently married).
Life is short, and these people just wanted the answer to the question, “what if?” The private investigators at Martin Investigative Services have helped find many such people over the years. Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.

Testimonials for Martin Investigative Services:
I’ve represented individuals and businesses (international and local) for close to fifty years, and I’ve called on Martin Investigative Services more times than I can count, often on a rush basis, for help throughout the world, on a number of different types of assignments. I’ve never been disappointed. I’ve always received swift, cost-effective and USEFUL information, which has wound up “saving the bacon” of our clients and making us shine in their eyes. I recommend them without any reservation.
I called the team at Martin PI to see if they could help me find someone I’d lost contact with years ago. They asked me a few questions and 24 hours later I had the information I was looking for. Great job! I’d definitely use them again.
Absolutely THE BEST! Engaged Martin Investigations to locate my son who decided to disappear from my life. It had been over 10 years since we last saw each other. Where others had failed miserably Tom Martin took on the task and was able to locate my son within hours. Tom provided me with my son’s current address, phone number and even my son’s E-mail address. Fair pricing, upfront explanation of what I could expect and quick service, this was money well spent. If I could give Martin Investigations a 10 star review I would gladly do so. Thank you Tom!
We have used Martin Investigative Services for three decades. Their work is exemplary; reports are perfect and their testimony is very professional, with great judge and jury appeal. We will not use anyone else for our investigations.
I have known Tom Martin and used Martin Investigative Services for over a decade. They have been our exclusive resource for all our corporate investigative work and have never let us down once in all those years. Their work has always been of the highest professional level.
I have no reservations whatsoever in endorsing Mr. Martin and his firm. Their service to us has always reflected the highest integrity and quality and we continue to rely on Tom with the utmost confidence.
My siblings and I were separated from our father since 1980 during a bitter divorce. We have been searching for him on and off for years to no avail. Martin Investigative Services opened this door for us to finally be reunited with our father. The last time I was with him and reunion photos are attached! A++++++
I had been estranged from my father for more than 16 years. My profession has me quite adept at conducting Internet searches, and I have access to some higher order people-tracking capabilities. But when it came to my Dad, all that brought nothing but false leads and dead ends.
My Dad is 87 years old now. For years I was sure he was probably dead. Yet I could never find his death certificate anywhere. And his older brother was still alive. So I always had that small spark of hope.
As a last gasp, I contacted Martin Investigative Services. Tom Martin assured me his databases were far more sophisticated than anything I had ever tried. I was skeptical to say the least. But since the search he suggested was surprisingly affordable, I gave it a try.
Within a DAY, he had found my Dad. A few hours before writing this review, I spoke on the phone with my 87-year-old father for 45 minutes, our first conversation in a decade and a half. He is doing remarkably well, and was very happy to hear from me. I can’t tell you what a load off my mind this is, eliminating that uncertainty. Thank you Martin Investigative Services. You are literally the answer to my prayers.
I have known Tom Martin and used his services for many years. I trust him with the most challenging investigative tasks.
Professional and efficient, he and his staff leave no stone unturned to get the job done.
My partner and I have utilized the services of Martin Investigative Services for in excess of 15 years. The services provided have ranged from simple background checks to covert surveillance and investigations into corporate malfeasance/conversion/theft of assets.
I have found Martin’s investigators conscientious, qualified, and most important of all, very credible to triers of fact when their testimony was necessary. Critical to any busy trial attorney is time. I have also found that upon turning an assignment over to Martin Investigative Services, I do not have to micromanage the assignment. It is done promptly and efficiently, with an eye toward the financial resources and capabilities of the client.
Tom Martin is thorough, knowledgeable and trustworthy. We have used Tom and his team to great success and will continue to do so.
Martin Investigative Services completed a search for a long lost relative of ours. As a family, we just wanted to know whether that individual was still alive and where they could be. They had disappeared many years ago and we were just looking for peace of mind, which Tom and his staff provided. What impressed me the most was how quickly and diligently they worked. Outstanding customer service.
I truly cannot thank Tom Martin from Martin Investigative Services enough! I have been searching for over ten YEARS for my biological paternal grandfather and kept coming up short because A.) he was a drifter before the age of social media and B.) both my father and grandmother had passed and took all knowledge of his existence with them to the grave. I had no knowledge of his real name, birth date, address, et cetera.
I finally had enough and scheduled a meeting with Tom Martin. I told him how desperate I was to find my grandfather and gave him what very little information I had. Martin Investigative Services found my grandfather within HOURS of our meeting. It turns out my grandfather also lives in California and I was able to meet him two days later. Not only did he have my grandfather’s address, but he had spoken with his sister and his mother. It turns out I had a great-grandmother and great-aunt that were excited to speak to me!
The resemblance between him, my father and myself is uncanny. If not for Tom and his team, I would never had been able to fill the hole in my heart and finally solve the mystery my father was never able to in life. They provided my with family I never knew I had and I’ve finally (!) been able to fill my family tree. Thank you, thank you, thank you M.I.S.!
