Pennsylvania Domestic Investigations

Even the closest families have problems or family concerns. The truth can be difficult to uncover, and honesty is often in short supply. You may fear for the safety of a family member or suspect that they are in trouble and need a way out. There are times when problems arise within a family that require the help of a private investigator. 

If you have suspicions that someone you love is struggling or hiding important matters, a confidential investigation by Brian Blackwell Investigations in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, gathers information to help you make difficult decisions and move forward without breaking the trust of your family. Our investigators provide thorough and confidential private investigations throughout Central Pennsylvania.

You want to be able to trust the people you love, but no one is perfect. Difficulties arise. Often, the people you are most worried about love you so much in return that they shield you from complications in their lives.

    Pennsylvania Missing Person Investigations

    The U.S. Department of Justice reports there are nearly one hundred thousand active missing person cases in the United States, and more than half of those reported are children. Private investigators are frequently hired to locate missing persons or estranged relatives. Many of the adults who become missing are not reported to police as missing person cases because the individual simply lost touch or chose to disappear for various reasons.

    Skip Tracing / Missing Person Investigations

    The term skip tracing comes from the expression "to skip town". Meaning to leave in a rush, leaving minimal clues behind for someone to "trace" the "skip" to a new location. Skip tracing is a process used to locate someone who is missing and generally requires gathering, organizing and analyzing large amounts of data on an individual to make a conclusion about where he or she is or might be. Done most commonly to locate people to rekindle relationships or handle legal and financial matters.

    Anyone who has spent some time on the Internet has probably seen websites that advertise "Find anyone for $15.00" or similar such claims. These are nearly, without exception, useless. At best they will give you a list of old addresses, and often times will provide you with addresses of anyone with the Subject's name. At worst they will take your money and leave you nothing. Such searches will likely just confuse, rather than clarify your search efforts. It is better to hire a professional to do the investigating. Professional private investigators typically are more efficient because they have much more experience, and they often have good relationships with police or other government agencies such as we do at Brian Blackwell.

    At Brian Blackwell Investigations, we have access to professional investigator databases not available to the average person that compile phone information, date of birth information, social security number information, social network information, credit information and other information about people and businesses.

    We don't just type in a name in our databases and hand over a report. We have a 96% success rate of locating individuals. This is accomplished by being diligent in our investigation and taking the necessary time to cross reference and double check data for accuracy. Don't waste your time and hard-earned money with online databases. They simply don't do justice to what a private investigator can accomplish.

    Is There Anyone We Can't Locate?

    Certainly. Individuals who frequently change their name, use aliases, change residences, or use alternate social security numbers complicate things, but it is a small percentage. We have access to data and sources to aid in our investigation that are not available to the average person, and the know-how built on over 20 years experience to locate the person you are looking for. Some individuals are harder to locate than others. Those who take extraordinary steps not to be found can require more time and work to locate than the average person. Provide as much information as you can on the individual you are looking for to help in the search. The more information you provide to us, the quicker the investigation is. Some basic information such as full name, date of birth or (approximate) age, last known address, last known employer, most recent photo, vehicle description (license plate number if you know it), and any other information you have. Even little details can prove to be beneficial.
