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:
Wow! What great service! I requested the information I needed to find a family member that I had never met. I have been looking for this person for over a year.
Within 1 hour all the contact info was e-mailed to me about this family member. I waited until the next day to try to contact them. The first phone number I called the person I was looking for answered my call! The first thing the family member said was how did you get this number? I had tried all those online services that claim they have special information but all I ever got were more old number and dead ends. What I needed was the personal service of Martin Investigations. I talked with him on his personal cell phone and he was ready to answer my questions. I was able to have dinner with this family member that night and they brought family photos of my biological Father whom I had never met that had since passed away. I am in the process of building a relationship with this family member that I had never met and I am confident I have made a new friend!
Thanks Thomas Martin!
