Free Find Missing People
So there's someone you know whom you have lost contact with. Now, you want to find him for whatever reason. How do you free find missing people?
Most people would advise you to hire a private investigator to do the job for you. But private investigators cost money. What are your alternatives? Here you will learn a few techniques on how to free find missing people.
When looking for people, the one thing you need to keep in mind is that people are generally creatures of habit. While some may be willing to give up their names and old addresses, most would still prefer to keep who they are.
Character and personality are two of the things that you can't change. A sports-minded person would want to visit the gym. A tennis player would want to play ball.
So if you are looking for someone with a peculiar habit, chances are you're going to find him or her exactly where you expect him or her to be, considering what you already know about his or her habits.

This is one of the simplest methods to free find missing people. It's a lot simpler now that the Internet is around.
First thing you need to do is to call up or send a letter to whatever phone number and address you have handy. Most of the time, the person you are trying to look for is not really hiding. Probably he just wanted to skip town and left traces for any discerning person to pick up.
If you do send a letter, make sure you ask the post office for an 'address correction.' You will need to pay extra but you'll find that it's worth it because the post office will then return a card to you, together with any forwarding address they have on file for the person.
Another simple method to free find missing people is phone pretext. This works if you have the person's old phone number or know someone who can give it to you. Once you have the phone number in hand, call it up. Ask for the one you're looking for when someone comes on the line. If the subject is not there, ask for any information.
You can start with a simple line like: 'Hi, this is John. I'm a friend of David's. Do you know where I can find him?' People are usually willing to help, but be prepared for a question or two.
