What is “Skip Tracing”?

In basic terms, skip tracing (or skip locating) is the act of finding someone who has left (or “skipped”) town with your vehicle or has made overt acts in the attempts to avoid a lien holder to avoid repossession. In a skip tracing case the person being located (known as the person of interest, or POI) doesn’t wish to be found. This is an important point of distinction. Often, the purposes of these cases is debt collection – a person of interested has “skipped town” to avoid their debt.

In these cases, a private investigator will attempt to locate the person of interest’s contact details, current address, and even location in real-time. He or she can only turn a person’s location and personal information over to a 3rd party when they have legal basis for doing so.

For ethical and legal reasons, most private investigators will not turn personal information over to a client without a sound legal reason for the client to be seeking this person (for example to collect on a debt), or the consent of the POI.
