Most frequent questions and answers

When you choose to hire one to do your job, they have many tactics at their disposal to help locate missing people. Some of the many methods that experienced professionals use to find missing persons include, but are not limited to, the following:

Nationwide Skip Trace Service:

Our licensed agents often conduct a skip trace service as a part of their child abduction private investigations. Nationwide skip tracing by a skip tracer, a process server, or a missing persons investigator is one of the fastest, least expensive ways to locate people. Our agents conducted tens of thousands of skip trace services as a part of their efforts to find missing persons for many years.

To conduct skip tracing, they will first ask each client for as much of the following information she/he/they has/have about the person of interest (POI) as possible:

  • Full Legal Names, Including Previous Names & Aliases
  • Social Security Number or Last Four Digits of the SS#
  • Date of Birth, Year of Birth, or Age Range
  • Race
  • Former & Current E-mail Addresses
  • Former & Current Residential & Employment Addresses, Including Dates & Those Addresses
  • Former & Current Phone Numbers
  • All URLs to Social Media Links
  • Driver’s License Number
  • Usernames/Login Names

They fully understand that most people do not have all this information. That is totally understandable, and many of our professionals understand this and can often even find much of this information on their own.

In return, our runaway teen private detectives will attempt to provide you with as much of the following information as possible about the person of interest (POI)

  • Full Legal Name
  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Number/SS#
  • Current & Former E-mail Addresses
  • Current & Former Residential & Work Addresses
  • Current & Former Phone Numbers
  • Professional Licenses
  • Liens
  • Judgments
  • Bankruptcies
  • Gun Licenses
  • UCC Filings
  • Names of the POI’s Neighbors, Family, & Friends & Their Info
  • Nationwide Criminal Background Check
  • Marriage License Records – California Only
  • Global Watch Lists
  • Employment History
  • So Much More! 

Do any of these items above sound like information that would be helpful for you to know about another person? If so, then you need to hire the best agent on your behalf. Our child abduction private investigators at our private investigation agency in OKC truly are the BEST! 

License Plate Checks:

Our professionals can also run any Oklahoma license plate of vehicles which are unknown to our clients or which are otherwise suspicious. Whenever you hire one to run the license plates of vehicles, you can rest assured that you will receive the name and address of the vehicle’s owner(s) expeditiously.

If the address associated with the owner of the vehicle turns out to be old of if you simply need additional information about the person of interest (POI), you can also hire a skip tracer, process server, or hire a parental kidnapping private detective to conduct nationwide skip tracing on your behalf. As mentioned earlier, our skip trace service by a licensed them can provide you with all kinds of valuable information about the POI that can prove to be very helpful in your court case against her/him/them.

Social Media Scans/Deep Internet Searches:

Our investigators can also conduct social media scans/deep Internet searches on persons of interest (POIs). These social media scans/deep Internet searches that our detectives run can show any public posts that the POI has made or about whom others have made. These social media scans/deep Internet searches that they can help give a clearer perspective and more insights into the whereabouts of missing persons.

Monitoring of the POI’s Social Media:

Another way to locate missing persons is by choosing to hire a missing persons private investigator to actively monitor the social media of a person of interest (POI). Indeed, many people post their whereabouts, activities, and whom they are with and at what time all over their social media. Thus, if you need to locate missing people quickly, you can hire them to closely watch a POI’s social media on your behalf. Eventually most people just give their whereabouts. 

Surveillance of the POI:

One of the best ways to find missing people is to hire the best agent to conduct surveillance on a POI. By waiting and watching the residence, place of employment, or even the homes or places of employment of friends and family members of the POI. Indeed, POIs tend to like to visit family, friends, and familiar areas, so if you need to locate missing people then this can be a great way to do it.

GPS & Other Tracking Devices:

Unfortunately, as of 2019 not even licensed private investigators may place tracking devices onto the vehicles or persons of others. Why is this so? A missing person’s private eye placed one onto the car of one of Oklahoma’s state legislators, and he got and helped pass a bill prohibiting the use of tracking devices. 

Canvassing Neighborhoods, Businesses, Etc.:

One of the most important methods to locate missing persons is to canvass neighborhoods, businesses, etc., where the person of interest  (POI) might frequent or where people could be that have seen the POI. This method does include a greater amount of time and financial resources than something less expensive and quicker like a skip trace by a skip tracer, but it also has its own benefits.

Skip tracing by the best skip tracer, while expensive and conducted quickly, also takes time to register new addresses for a POI. It can often take months or even years for POIs to rent a new P.O. box, pay taxes, register a new car or driver’s license, register new utilities, etc. When you need to find a person quickly but the person has only recently disappeared, then it is likely that the new address may not yet register on the nationwide skip trace. This is especially true if the POI has no stable home or work address.

While choosing to hire the best missing persons private detective does cost money, they can start this work quickly. Because the owners of our private investigation agency in Nichols Hills, OK have built this women-owned private detective agency up to be the largest Oklahoma-owned agency, you can hire many detectives to work quickly to cover large areas.

Reviewing CCTV Video Footage:

Another popular tactic you can hire them to review CCTV cameras around neighborhoods and businesses, especially in areas very close to where the person of interest (POI) could be or where she/he/they has/have recently been. By choosing to hire one to review video camera footage, you are covering yet another base in helping to locate a missing person.

Post Office Box Checks to Locate Physical Addresses Associated With USPS P.O. Boxes:

Sometimes all our clients have when trying to find a disappeared person is that person’s United States Postal Service’s (USPS’s) P.O. box number. While interesting, no process server can serve papers upon a post office box. However, our missing kids private investigators at our private investigation agency can request to see the physical address associated with the post office box number

Forwarding Mail Address Checks:

Whenever someone moves from one home or work address to another, they can also file a mail forwarding request form to have the USPS send their mail from their old address to their new one. That way they continue to receive all their mail. You can hire private detective to conduct missing kids private investigations by requesting that new address from the United States Postal Service


When romance scams occur or you suspect marital infidelity, you can hire the best infidelity private investigator to conduct romance scam private investigations on your behalf via catfishing. Catfishing occurs when our investigators to create fake romance and sex profiles and reach out to the POI for romance and/or sex. Not only can catfishing help catch cheaters, but such a method can also help to draw out a POI and find a missing person! 

Hiring Paid Informants:

Ah, there is nothing quite as nice as a paid informant. Even law enforcement officials use paid informants to gather intelligence and data they want. As such, one method an experienced professionals is to use money or other goods to loosen the tongues of people who might have knowledge of a missing person’s whereabouts. Indeed, many people will gladly turn on one another and take larger risks for money, so sometimes our agents try this method. 

The chances of locating disappeared people within the first 72 hours of their disappearance is 75%-94%, whether alive or dead. Indeed, most “findable” are located by law enforcement, and/or by runaway teen private detectives within this time period. After 72 hours, the chances of being able to find them drop significantly, because memories start to fade and leads begin to disappear.

Thus, it is vital that you choose to hire one. Each hour that passes makes it less and less likely that someone will find them for you with a high degree of success.
