Finding missing persons calls for a confidential approach
There are a few institutions that can help you with finding missing persons. One of them is the police, and the other is an independent professional company such as Infinite Risks International. Who you ask for help depends on the situation and your relationship with the missing person. Also, our methods of how to find missing persons differ.
When loved ones disappear without a trace, contacting the police immediately, to file a missing person report, is crucial. They will act immediately and open a case. That does not mean the police will instantly round up a search party to start looking. They dedicate the first hour or so to register all the relevant information you can give and assess the situation. The approach to finding a missing person depends on the motives. With a missing child, the procedure differs from when an adult goes missing.
Law enforcement considers a person missing and takes action when:
- A person is missing from his or her habitual and considered safe environment
- The current whereabouts of a person is unknown
- The absence differs from normal behavior
- It is in the missing person’s interest to find him or her
The detailed steps taken may vary slightly per country, but the procedure generally includes searching the home, school, and workplace, checking hospitals, close friends and monitoring social media. An example of such an investigation process can be found on the Australian Government website ‘Missing Persons’ . Sometimes special units are included, such as dedicated intelligence, social services, or Interpol.
Independent finding missing persons investigation
Whether someone is considered missing subjects strongly to the person himself and the circumstances. For adults, the unusualness of their absence and the potential risk they run signify the need to investigate the matter. In other words, persons who become crime victims or seek solitude have a different motive than persons who run from responsibilities. In this last case, you can think of parents avoiding alimony or child support, parents kidnapping children, criminals who evade justice or tax authorities, and fraudulent business partners.
Sometimes, the help of police organizations takes too long, or they have no further reasons to proceed with the case. If you require help to locate someone, consider our assistance.
