Missing Persons

Posted by on Oct 29, 2013 in Missing Children, Missing Person, Skip Tracing | Comments Off on Missing Persons

Missing Persons

What classifies someone as a missing person? Recently, I wrote about skip tracing, and how we at Owens Investigations classify “skips.” Even though many groups include any missing person in the skip category, for us a missing person is a different category worthy of it’s own classification and distinct approach in our investigative plan. For us, a missing person is someone that a family member or friend is looking to find because they are concerned about them or want to reestablish contact with them. They may have gone...

What is Skip Tracing?

Skip Tracing. Have you ever heard someone use this term, but you weren’t really sure what it meant? Today the term is used fairly broadly, so let’s see if I can help clarify it for you. Skip tracing refers to the act of finding a missing person. Initially, the term was used to refer to a person who was out of jail on bail or bond and then “skipped” town. The bail bondsman would then hire someone to track or “trace” the person and bring them back to jail, hence the term “skip tracer.” Today,...
