Missing Persons

Missing Persons: We put together teams of specialists to be led by experts specifically for these cases. These are not inexpensive and do demand a committed effort from our clients. The emotional burdens of these types of cases is great and its important you put your trust in ICS to execute the right steps to reunite you with your loved ones.

Missing Persons

The term “missing person” is used to refer to people who have been abducted, or who have disappeared on their own accord, and law enforcement investigations follow a specific protocol depending on the circumstances.

Law enforcement agencies follow a very specific set of guidelines for dealing with reports of missing persons. An immediate assessment is made as to the risk level of the missing person, with a high risk designation being used most commonly for young children whose lives may be in imminent danger. Unfortunately, despite a national database for missing persons information, and a number of organizations dedicated to such investigations, resources are still stretched thin. If your loved one has gone missing, you owe it to them and to yourself to use every means necessary to find them. Call ICS today for a free consultation, and let us take part in the investigation. We have a global network of resources and investigators to put at your disposal, and we will go to work immediately. We will not stop when the police give up on a ‘cold case.’
