To locate someone, searching for someone, finding a missing friend or relative, to find a witness, to find your birth mother, or father. Witness location, relative searches and birth parents are major fields of missing person searches. We use a combination of public, and paid for, information to search; we make inquiries with local people, to try and glean further information.

Our Australian Person Locator is NOT a computer program. It is actually conducted by investigators using our access to various public and private information. We apply human fuzzy logic and experience. As we are not a computer program we have the ability to make phone inquiries, ask questions and if necessary arrange for on site inquiries to be made (we are a networked company with operatives in, or traveling to, various parts of Australia). Things such as being female (more likely to change surname), using multiple names, attempting to avoid contact due to debt and many other variables may increase difficulty.
WE HAVE HAD AMAZING SUCCESSES using our Australian Person Locator system, including recently locating a birth mother for an Australian adopted girl of 37yrs (adopted at birth). The mother had moved, married and now lives in California, USA (There had been rumours that the birth mother had moved to Germany). All conventional avenues she had attempted previously had failed. The daughter has found a new family of half brothers and sisters, plus medical information she should know.
