Skip Tracing is a term used to describe the process of locating a person’s whereabouts for any number of purposes. The term originates from the slang use of the word “skip” used to describe a person being searched for, combined with the expression “to skip town,” meaning to depart, perhaps in a rush, leaving minimal clues behind for someone to “trace” the “skip” to a new location.
Investigators at Huntting Investigations understand there are many reasons why people choose to hide from the world in general. These people fall into two categories we broadly define as run-aways and walk-aways. Run-aways attempt to go into hiding for a variety of reasons such as; criminal activity, family issues or financial woes. Walk-aways are people who may not know they are missing. These individuals could be missing heirs, adoptions or mental illness.
Whatever the reason may be, contact Huntting Investigations and our former law enforcement investigators will work closely with you by using a combination of OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) and old fashioned field investigative expertise to locate difficult people on the run or in hiding.
