Swift Missing Person and Asset Investigations

Michael Collins has investigated several interesting cases brought to him by clients since 2009. Here are a few…

Michael was hired to research a couple’s older home to determine if there was a case for paranormal investigators. Through exhaustive examination the house, and land it was built upon, was discovered to be the site of a terrible slaughter in the 18th Century. Michael used his vast collection of contacts to supply the client with professional, scientific paranormal investigators who identified the haunting entities.

A young man from the middle of the state was perplexed as to where his former girlfriend had fled with his child. Michael found her in a matter of hours and supplied the information to the client resulting in a reunion with his offspring.

A New York attorney needed to find a client who was believed to be in Ohio. After a search through databases as well as “gumshoe” work, the present address was determined, even though the client was on-the-run.

A wife from out of state called to ask that surveillance be done as her husband was attending a working conference in the Cleveland area She believed her husband was unfaithful and the conference would provide him with an opportunity to “play”. After 6.5 hours of surveillance and numerous hours of investigation, it was determined that nothing could be found in the time allotted, and even though the client was skeptical, Michael is an objective and honest Private Investigator and reported exactly what he found, or did not find.

A landlord called and requested that the background of a prospective renter be checked for anything that may affect the landlord’s decision on to whom he should rent. Michael completed a background check and found the impending renter had lived in several different residences in a one-year period and was not a good risk.
