Providing GAIN PI with as much information as possible on your missing loved one or friend will increase the odds in locating that individual for you. GAIN PI’s policy for locating the missing person is as follows: In order to prevent stalking and harassment and to preserve the safety of private citizens, it may be necessary to run a criminal background on the person requesting information prior to running the search. We must perform these searches to determine if there are any outstanding restraining orders against the person requesting the search from the person they are attempting to locate. If the background is clear GAIN PI will proceed with the locate. Once located, GAIN PI will contact the individual first. GAIN PI requires you to allow us to disclose to the individual your identity. We will request they sign a authorization for GAIN PI to release information on them to you. Or if you wish, we will provide your contact information and allow them to contact you on their own. We will inform you of the individual’s wishes. If the individual requests us not contact them again, all communication with that individual will cease, you will be provided a verbal report, which will not include the contact information.
