Private Investigators in Toronto Ontario are often tasked with missing person investigations. These types of cases can also be called “locates” or “skip tracing.” The Toronto clients hiring a Private Investigator for a missing person case are typically friends, family, or associates of the missing person. In the case of “skip tracing,” the client will often be an Ontario insurance agency or a debt collection agency. With an Ontario insurance locate, the subject of the missing person case will often be involved in alleged fraud. Obviously, with a missing person case regarding debt, the subject is needed to be located to settle their debt. However, there are also many business deals in Toronto that turn sour and create victims of business wrongdoings. These victims will also use “skip tracing” to locate the guilty party.

Finding Missing People in Toronto with Cyber Investigations

Cyber Investigations will often be the first place a Toronto Private Investigator starts when attempting to find a missing person. Many articles on this topic will state that a missing person Investigator will start with investigating the subject’s network of known associates and spread outward from there. However, this is not entirely accurate. The client will often have unique and intimate information regarding the missing Toronto person. The Private Investigator will use this information to determine how to start the missing person investigation. The client should also be able to provide the missing persons Investigator with the subject’s online information. This can be things such as, social media accounts and emails. This is a great way for the missing persons Investigator to establish “Anchor” points when beginning the missing person case.

Interviewing in a Toronto Missing Person Case

Utilizing interviewing for a Toronto missing person case is just as it sounds. The missing persons Investigator will gather information on Torontonians that appear to have knowledge on the subject’s whereabouts and then interview them. The method of interviewing can be in-person, thru telephone, and even communicating via the internet. Attempting to locate the missing person in the city of Toronto overtly or covertly will depend on if the Investigator wants the subject to know that they are trying to be located. If the subject is purposely missing (skip trace) in order to avoid consequences for their past actions, the missing persons Investigator is probably not going to want to alert them of the missing persons investigation. This can be done by the Investigator interviewing individuals through a pre-text.

Toronto Surveillance used for Missing Persons Cases

Surveillance in Toronto is used when the missing persons Investigator has known locations in Toronto that the subject might be located at, or perhaps known associates of the missing person. In order for the missing persons Investigator to properly perform surveillance in Toronto, they will need complete and up to date information regarding the missing person.

If a skilled and experienced missing persons Investigator decides that surveilling a location in Toronto is needed, there is a good chance that the surveillance will provide valuable information to the missing person case. This can be providing the next step in the missing person investigation or finding the missing person altogether.
