missing person

When searching for a missing loved one, or an individual required for a legal case, it can be very time-consuming to search alone. Furthermore, not everyone has expert detective skills to swiftly locate someone either. 

People can drop off the radar for a variety of reasons, and when finding them is proving too difficult, it’s time to call in the professionals. 

Reveal private investigators work across the Wolverhampton area to assist businesses and individuals with finding missing people. 

For those who are in need of our help, here is an overview of the investigative services that we provide. 

Definition Of Private Investigator

A private investigator is someone who is licenced to undertake detective work on behalf of companies, organisations or private individuals.  

As the name suggests, a missing person private investigator specialises in tracing individuals who are proving difficult to find. 

The work of a private investigator can also include other services such as bug covert surveillance, fraud investigations, matrimonial investigations and bug sweeping.

Reasons For Hiring A Missing Persons Private Investigator

Similar to any other professional service you may require, sometimes expertise is needed due to a lack of resources or even time restraints. When a search for a missing person is fruitless, our private detective agency in Wolverhampton can help you overcome any hurdles that are preventing you from finding the individual. 

Various Strategies Used by a Private Detective to Find a Missing Person

When people type in ‘private investigator wolverhampton’ or ‘private detective wolverhampton’ into Google, they may not be fully aware of just how extensive our services can be. 

Depending on the information provided to us, we can take your missing persons search in several directions. This includes conducting the following checks on your behalf. 

Conduct Background Checks

Our private investigators can put boots on the ground in Wolverhampton to ask the ‘who, what, why, where and when’ questions to reveal vital clues about your missing person investigation. In addition, we will also check any relevant digital records to piece information together. 


We can conduct covert surveillance to gather evidence. While surveillance activity is often carried out for fraud or matrimonial investigations, it can also be useful when trying to find missing people, in particular when addresses need to be confirmed discreetly. 

Interview Friends, Family, and Potential Witnesses

Interviewing anyone relevant to the investigation can help in several ways. As well as putting a timeline together, our questions can also help to reveal key pieces of information that may lead us to the next steps. 

Check Social Media Accounts

Sometimes missing people are hiding in plain sight, with social media accounts being a prime example of where people may leave a trail of their movements. Hiring a private investigator can offer an in-depth analysis of any online activity that may lead to a breakthrough. 

Search Hospitals or Mortuaries for a Missing Person

Private investigators can assist with some of the more sensitive aspects of tracing a missing person, including checking whether they could be injured or deceased. Where such lines of enquiry are warranted, the results can bring much-needed answers or closure for families and friends.
