How do I find someone?

Sometimes trying to find someone can be really difficult, especially if they do not want to be found.

‘Skip Tracing’ is the term used to describe the process of locating a person of interest.

Our agents have access to the best and expansive database to search for, find and locate individuals available in Australia. Our searches and the data our agents collect is completely compliant with Australian Privacy Principles and the privacy protection framework in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) so you can rest assured the data that our agents access and retrieve on your behalf is completely above board.

Data we can access

What information can I access to locate someone?

Our agents have access to over half a billion records, containing both current and historical data. Our searches can return a wide range of data, including but not limited to:

  • Residential and business addresses, current and historical
  • Mobile phone numbers and ability to check the currency of the phone numbers
  • Email addresses and ability to check the currency of the email addresses
  • Whether the person if interest is flagged as deceased, bankrupt, in prison or in an aged care facility
  • Date of birth

Important Information

How likely is it that I will find someone?

Whilst we are able to access an expansive database that has over 500 sources of data and 500,000,000 points of data, we cannot guarantee we can locate every individual. The results our searches provide are only as good as the instructions we are provided by our clients, the extent that we may access data pursuant to the Australian Privacy Principles and the data footprint left by the person of interest. Accordingly, it may be the case that we are unable to locate an individual’s current location just purely by searching our database, however our search results and report can be used to confirm contact details for an individual such as email address and phone number.

For more conclusive results on a person of interest’s current whereabouts, the next best step is to engage a Private Investigator to attempt to physically locate the person of interest or fugitive. Servedoc Private Investigation is coming soon.
