The holiday season is the time of year when families come together. But for the families of more than 250,000 people who go missing in the UK every year (according to the Home Office), Christmas can be a difficult occasion. Sometimes it may be necessary to get the ball rolling on an investigation in order to locate an individual. Blackhawk are experts at people tracing, so they can help you find the person you’re looking for this December.
Finding your loved ones
At Blackhawk, we have a dedicated and experienced people tracing team, including contacts overseas (particularly in Europe and the Middle East) that can help us locate someone who may have left the UK. Due to the access we have to a range of contacts, assets, databases and forensic IT skills, we can work on finding your loved one in a way that is both fast and efficient.
Tracing missing beneficiaries
Many people who are cited in wills are often not known to the executor of the will. If this is the case, beneficiaries need to be found so that they can accept the terms of the will.
We can locate and trace unknown and missing beneficiaries all over the world. We are able to do this because we have access to a number of up-to-date records and databases, including access to those that are overseas.
Such records and databases include:
- Birth, marriage and death records
- Electoral rolls and people finding databases
- Wills and probate records
- Overseas bankruptcy and litigation records
In addition to this, we can also use email, phone and personnel records as well as witness interviews taken with family, friends and former colleagues. This can help us to locate a beneficiary quickly and easily so that the estate surrounding the will can be settled.
We can help you be reunited with your loved one this holiday season. Part of working with us means that you can expect regular progress reports to help you monitor how the investigation is proceeding. We also work on a fixed fee basis, which means that there’ll be no unwelcome surprises at the end of our investigation.
