According to The Guardian, approximately 180,000 people are reported missing every year, on average, in the United Kingdom. Between 2020 and 2021, the National Crime Agency (NCA) wrote a report that indicated the pandemic had a significant impact on the number of people who went missing that year, but not in the way you might have thought.
Instead of increasing, the numbers actually decreased. As detailed in the same report (2020-2021 UKMPU Statistical Data Report), in 2020/2021, 17.8% fewer missing people were reported that year compared to the previous year in England and Wales. Scotland also experienced a dramatic decrease with a reduction of 48.3% in 2020/2021 compared to 2019/2020.
Unfortunately, in 2020/2021, more children were reported missing than adults, according to the same NCA report, with 137,043 children going missing compared to 101,680 adults. This equates to well above the UK national average for people going missing each year. This highlights that, although the number had decreased compared to the previous year, having missing family members going missing is still a prevalent problem and Delta 74 Private Investigations can help locate your loved ones.
Using our specialist people tracing service, you can rest assured that we’ll locate missing family members or, if they cannot be traced, find out what happened to them. People tracing services are often used by people who are searching for family members who have run away, are missing or have been adopted into another family. It might be that they’ve moved to another country and you lost touch completely. No matter the circumstances, Delta 74 Private Investigations will be proud to help.
As one of our core services, it can be adapted to suit the complexity of your situation. If a case is more complicated, then we can use a more in-depth people tracing package. The way in which we locate missing or long-lost family members is completely legal, with all of our online resources coming directly from the open internet.
However, should our basic package not yield any results, we’ll open our search to pursue an Open Source Intelligence Investigation. This is more commonly-known in the industry as an OSINT investigation. But you can rest assured that our basic people-tracing package is no-find, no-fee. But please note; if you need a more bespoke, complex investigation, then this will not be no-find, no-fee.
You’ll also have absolute peace of mind that we carry out a strict due diligence policy before we look to carry out any of our people tracing services, no matter how basic or complex they might be. This ensures that the subject of investigation isn’t being found with intent of harm. If you have any questions about our people tracing service, then be sure to ask one of our expert team.
