What are Missing Person Investigations?
On average, more than 800,000 people are reported as missing and are entered into FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) annually. Of these, 85%-90% are minors. These statistics do not include those who are unofficially missing such as those who have not been reported as missing persons.
Unfortunately, searches by law enforcement for missing adults and children are not always given the priority needed. As a result, some children are never located having fell prey to a kidnapping, parental abduction, pedophile or child killer. Police are also reluctant, due to thinning resources, to search for people who voluntarily left home or for those who live on the streets. Even in a police-led missing person search, police will stop looking after a certain amount of time and will declare the case a cold case.
Law enforcement agencies do their best with the resources they have, but they simply are not always equipped to deal with the crime rates today. If you are concerned about the whereabouts and well-being of any adult or child who cannot be located, your first call should be to your local law enforcement agency; and the next call should be to Midstate Security and Investigations. A Midstate private investigator will start looking for someone as soon as you feel uneasy and will continue to search as long as you are still looking for answers.
