Similar in nature to our "Locates" service, Paramount Investigative Services draws upon decades of experience scouring the Los Angeles area to find a missing person. Utilizing everything from police database records to skip-trace experts and field surveillance, our in-depth approach to finding missing persons far exceeds the scope of any law enforcement's approach. We get boots on the ground fast, and communicate in-depth with the homeless population throughout LA to pinpoint the location of anyone off the beaten path.
As licensed, insured and certified private investigators with decades of experience exclusively in the private investigation field, our team of experienced investigators embarks on missing person locates with confidence. We know who's conning us and who isn't, what information is accurate and what's deceptive, what leads to follow and what trails lead to dead ends. Through a combination of in-depth knowledge of the city and an efficient approach to fieldwork often absent from other private investigators' techniques, Paramount Investigative Services ensures your case receives the attention and careful consideration it deserves.
Law enforcement often attempts to locate missing individuals, yet frequently lacks the manpower and time available to perform adequate surveillance. In a large city with constant crime, police departments are already spread thin, and would rather focus their resources on addressing "real crime". It might not seem like it, but the police's method for finding missing persons is to simply wait it out - for weeks, months, or even years! The longer you wait to begin a search for a missing individual, the harder it will become for any investigator to find them. The first 48 hours are the most crucial when searching for a missing person - with the likelihood of finding them dramatically dropping off after the 72-hour mark.
All too often, the police either fail to find a missing individual altogether, or if they do eventually find them, officers aren't always eager to welcome a smelly homeless person into their car - opting to leave them on the street and let the case go unsolved. Unfortunately, we've seen this first-hand on several occasions.
If you’re looking to efficiently locate an individual, a private investigator greatly increases your chances - don't wait for the police. Between social media surveillance and field surveillance, private investigators can dedicate the time and resources to covering every possible area to help find the individual you’re looking for.
While our locate services are more aimed toward attorneys and our clientele searching for an evasive or hiding witness, our missing person investigation services aim to provide peace of mind to residents searching for a missing wife, husband, son, daughter, friend or any other close individual. If a family member of yours has gone missing and you're looking to maximize your chances of finding them as quickly as possible, consider the assistance of a professional private investigator in Los Angeles. In collaboration with law enforcement or on our own, private investigators are willing to go above and beyond to ensure your case receives the attention to detail it deserves to result in your loved one's discovery.
