Missing person in line up

The holiday season is the time of year when families come together. Unfortunately, for the families of the 180,000 people who go missing in the UK every year (according to the charity Missing People), Christmas can be a difficult occasion. For those who want to get started on locating that individual, you need to get the ball rolling on an investigation as soon as possible. At Blackhawk, we’re experts at people tracing, so we can help you find the person you’re looking for this winter.

Finding your loved ones

At Blackhawk, we have a dedicated and experienced people tracing team that will help you locate loved ones that have gone missing. We also have contacts overseas (particularly in Europe and the Middle East) that can help us locate someone who may have left the UK or has gotten lost while travelling abroad. With our access to a range of contacts, assets and databases and our team’s forensic IT skills, we can work on finding your loved one in a way that is both fast and efficient.

Tracing missing beneficiaries

In many situations, people who are cited in wills are often not known to the executor of the will. When this occurs, beneficiaries need to be found so they can accept the terms of the will. When trying to settle an estate yourself, the process can be complicated and time-consuming as you’ll have to go through the application process to access pertinent information leading to beneficiaries.

Here at Blackhawk, we can assist you in this process by helping you gain the legal rights to deal with the estate of the deceased, known as a grant of probate. Our team can locate and trace unknown and missing beneficiaries all over the world. We can do this because we have access to many 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

We can also use email, phone and witness interviews with family, friends and former colleagues. This helps us to swiftly locate a beneficiary so that the estate surrounding the will can be settled.
