When your loved one goes missing, it is a scary and difficult time. There are certain steps you should take, one of which – after contacting the police – is contacting a Bucks County private investigator.

On average, 750,000 people are reported missing annually, and there up to 90,000 missing persons cases at any given time in the United States. Of that, 60% are adults and 40% are minors. Police departments are often juggling a heavy caseload, limited manpower, and protocols that determine how long they can look for someone before labeling it a “cold case.” By hiring a Bucks County private investigator to find your missing loved one, you will have someone devoting all their time and attention to your case until your loved one is found. A private investigator will keep up the search as long as you are still looking for answers.

How Does a Private Investigator Locate a Missing Person?

  • Networking – We put together social media pages and garner media coverage to ensure your case stays at the forefront of the community. We have an extensive professional network as well that is another reliable source of leads and information.
  • In-person searches – In addition to gathering and following up leads, we monitor places the missing person may visit based on their interests and habits. We also search hospitals, train stations, and other facilities where they may be. We question witnesses, conduct background checks, and offer a toll free tip line.

Unlike police, Bucks County private investigators can devote their time exclusively to your case. They also have more freedom in investigating as they are not bound by jurisdiction. If information shows that your loved one is another state – or even another county – a private investigator can go in person to conduct the search whereas police would have to enlist the help of local departments.
