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.

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!

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.!
