Private investigators, not just for surveillance…

When most people think of a private investigator, they tend to picture an individual lurking in the shadows snapping a few pictures of a cheating spouse.  While that does happen occasionally, the services offered by a licensed private investigator extend far beyond that scenario.

We were recently contacted by an individual needing to locate her ex-husband.  They had divorced over 20 years ago and she had been attempting to locate him for almost a year.  In 2 days we located his phone number and spoke with him regarding the situation. He then spoke with our client and graciously agreed to fax her the documents she needed.

It’s always free to discuss your case, so give us a call if you need help locating someone.

Another MSL Investigations success story…

Recently we were able to assist Kate in locating her biological mother, father, and brother.  Due to an error on her original birth certificate, she had been unable to locate them prior to contacting MSL Investigations.  I want to thank Kate for allowing us to work on her behalf and for allowing us to share her success story with others.

Below is a brief note Kate wrote about her experience. (Surnames removed for privacy reasons)

Tuesday at 4:15p, I spoke with Matt of MSL Investigations regarding my biological family. At 8:45p the same night, I first spoke to my birth mom on the phone.  Last night with Paul by my side and my parents’ complete support, I met her, her partner of over 30 years, Paul (yes, odd), and my 82-year-old biological grandmother. Thank you, Matthew, for your part in changing the lives of so many people. To be loved by people who don’t even know you is a strange feeling. My brother Bryon isn’t even a full year younger than I!”

Choosing the right company to locate your birth parent

If you are contemplating beginning a search for your biological parents and have stumbled upon this page as the result of a Google or Facebook search, I want you to know that I understand you have many options and I appreciate you taking the time to consider MSL Investigations.

Like any other industry, unfortunately, there are a handful of companies that continually receive complaints. A simple Google search can help direct you away from the companies you need to avoid… simply enter the name of the business and the word “reviews”. For example, “MSL Investigations reviews”. If a company has a high number of complaints, those complaints will typically show towards the top of your search results. Once you eliminate those companies, you can make an educated decision as to what company you will employ to assist you with your search.

I hope that company will be mine, but even if it’s not, I wish you the best of luck in your search.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
