More Info
Finding people can be challenging especially when limited information is known or when a person does not want to be found. Laws can protect the privacy of individuals and can create roadblocks. Information from publically available databases is usually very limited, outdated and rarely results in successful searches. For these reasons, it is best to use an experienced People Locator when trying to locate or find people.

People Locator Service can conduct a timely investigation to find as much information as possible regarding the location of a person. We have access to special databases not available to the public and other resources that can help us find the best information. We verify our findings personally.

Note: The locate investigations described above are for traditional locates of adults. They are not designed to locate missing children, birth parents of adopted individuals or will and probate beneficiaries. For information on fees for those services, please contact our office.

Ticia is the best private investigator I have every worked with in my 21 years as a corporate trust officer. She is enjoyable to work with and she finds what I ask her to find. Heirs are difficult to find, yet Ticia takes on all challenges given her AND is successful! Boy are the heirs of estates and trusts excited when we locate them and can deliver a bundle of money or assets to them. Everyone is happy!!!!
