How Do Private Investigators Find Someone?

It’s a lot easier to hide from the police than it is to stay on the down-low from a professional private investigator. 

The main reason for this is that the police are understaffed and most detectives have hundreds of cases piling up on their desks, and no matter how hard they work, it’s impossible for them to give each case the time it really deserves.

On the other hand, when you hire a private investigator, he is working solely on your case for the duration of the investigation, using various tactics and experience to find someone in record time, because of their focus on your case in particular.

Finding someone who doesn’t want to be found isn’t easy if you don’t have the knowledge, experience and skill that private investigators have, especially when it comes to a company like King Investigators, who have been in the industry for well over a decade.

Owner Jacques Botha and his team of private investigators have traced people as far as Brazil, Argentina, Swaziland, Mozambique, Namibia, Lesotho and of course, throughout South Africa.

Some of these cases have been high risk ones, which have taken all the knowledge and experience garnered by Jacques in his years out in the field, in order to bring these cases to a successful conclusion.

How do private investigators find someone?

Since every tracing case is different to the next, Jacques and his team will approach finding someone a little differently in each case, yet still relying on the standard basics that are generally used when trying to find someone.

These standard practices include using the person’s name and ID or date of birth, finding where they work or if they own a business, finding their address or property owned by them etc.

The client that hires King Investigators needs to be able to give the team as much information as possible regarding the background of the person they have to find, such as:

  • Previous work and/or career information
  • Previous addresses or geographic location
  • Friends they used to spend time with and relative’s names

Based on this information, however much the client is able to give the private investigator, he will get to work, using some or all of the tactics discussed above.

King Investigators will also use some of the information they’ve been given or have gathered to do research on social media platforms as well, which hold a wealth of information not necessarily tied to the person they are trying to find, but perhaps to friends and family.

Because each case that involves finding someone is unique, and the circumstances are different from case to case, there are times when it’s necessary for Jacques and his team to do field work, which would involve surveillance.

Really want to know how private investigators find someone?

There are many reasons why people want to find someone, whether it’s a loved one who has gone missing, someone you have a civil or criminal judgement against, old school friends and even perhaps a past romantic acquaintance you let slip through your fingers.

No matter the reason, as long as it’s above-board and not to harm anyone, contact King Investigators today to find out more about how Jacques and his team of registered private investigators can help you to find someone, at private investigator rates that are affordable.
