People Search – Searching Tips

If you fail to locate the country of residence for the individual, the tips mentioned below can help with the search efforts. However, even this systematic search may not yield the desired outcome for you.

Search through profiles on the Internet

While some social media platforms are local to each country, others, such as

  • Facebook,
  • Instagram
  • and others

have a global reach. You can search online for the person by name in one or more of these accounts and sites. However, the name search can be complicated by the fact that some people choose an alias name for their profile.

Remember to also use search engines online intensively for searching. Sites like

  • Google
  • Bing
  • Pipl
  • LinkedIn
  • Spokeo
  • People search engines
  • and other local search engines or local social networks

are very useful in this context for a people search. Best of all, a people search by using these sources is free of charge. These websites are public sources (OSINT).

Although minimal, there is still a chance that you may be able to find people you seek with relative ease through these websites. However, it only works if the person you are looking for operates an account with their real name and not an alias, which is a common trend across many of the social media platforms.

Moreover, a considerable part of the global population is absent from social media websites, due to lack of proper Internet connections or a simple lack of interest in online activity.

Sometimes you can actually find the person’s current address in this way. If you cannot locate the person through social media, there are other ways for you to try.

File a missing persons report

If the person you seek is residing in the same country as you, the local police force may assist you find them and check some files. They have the necessary resources to conduct such search operations for your friend, relative, debtor or others. They have access to many non public files and records.

However, if you suspect that the subject of your search has travelled abroad, the local police cannot assist you until he or she returns to the nation. Even so, the police are busy and dedicate most of their manpower to eradicating criminal activities, rather than international locating missing people for you.

Searching country databases when doing people search

You can search the national database of the countries where the missing person may have relocated or fled to. Keep in mind that most of the countries do not maintain similar databases.

Moreover, even in such databases, you may fail to locate the person’s address or contact information. The data in these portals can be out of date, depending on its management and maintenance.

You can also use public records and the white pages. However, a search in the telephone book is only successful if the person actually has a phone number that is also publicly listed. Nowadays many phone numbers and addresses are unfortunately no longer published.
