Search for missing persons
It is difficult to give an exact percentage of successful missing persons cases as it can vary greatly depending on many factors. Some of the factors that may affect the success of a missing person’s case are the amount of information available about the missing person and the circumstances of their disappearance, the resources and experience of the private investigator or law enforcement agency handling the case, and the time of the person’s disappearance.
In some cases a missing person can be found quickly, in others the search can take much longer. In some cases, a missing person may be found alive and well, while in others they may be found dead. In some cases, a missing person may not be found at all, despite extensive efforts to locate them.
The time at which investigative activities will be undertaken by a private detective and law enforcement authorities is extremely important. Often a private detective is able to locate the missing person within a few days. This may be the case especially when the missing person has not been threatened in any way at the hands of third parties and their disappearance is the result of health factors. In some cases, a private detective may be able to confirm the approximate location of the wanted person within a dozen or so hours.
