Skip Tracing Services

The term “skip tracing” refers to finding missing persons. The term comes from the debt collection industry and refers to those who “skip out” on their debts by moving and not leaving a forwarding address. Today the term skip tracing has been adapted to mean finding a missing person, regardless of if they have skipped out on a debt. The insurance industry requires skip tracing for a variety of reasons, most often to locate the claimant.

When conducting insurance fraud investigations, we conduct skip tracing on claimants, their family members, witnesses, and others who we need to find to investigate a claim. It is not uncommon to be assigned Subrosa Surveillance surveillance on a claimant who no longer resides at the last known address. We then conduct missing person skip tracing to find the party.
