Following the recent location of missing schoolgirl Megan Stammers, attention has turned to the number of missing people in the UK and the use of private detectives to trace them.

Most investigators have dealt with locating missing people before and have the knowledge to aid a case and expose new leads that could be vital to the location of a missing person.

Fifteen-year-old Megan Stammers and her maths teacher Jeremy Forrest went missing on September 20 and were found over a week later on September 28. After a European arrest warrant and heightened focus on the continent to find the pair, Megan was luckily found safe and well.

Unfortunately, Megan is one of an estimated quarter of a million people that go missing from the UK each year. According to statistics by Missing People, 140,000 of those people are under the age of 18, with children in the 15-17 year old age group going missing most frequently and making up 36% of all missing persons reports.

While the police are often involved in finding missing persons, some families will often enlist the help of a private investigator to aid the search and maximise the chances of finding a missing loved one.

Private Investigators Manchester are experienced in the tracing and locating of missing people. They believe the assistance of an experienced investigator on missing person cases can offer an added depth to a case.
