In a missing person investigation, time is always of the essence, especially when discussing child abductions or missing persons struggling with alcohol or substance abuse. Access to an accurate physical description, as well as details, such as the missing person’s social security number or their financial records, prove to be more than valuable for a successful search.

Success Story: Finding Missing Person In Chicago Area

I contacted Lawrence Ryan Investigation Services on behalf of my distraught clients for a missing persons case. I am an attorney in the Detroit-area and was representing the parents of an 18-year-old daughter with a learning disability. They were understandably frantic.


My clients’ daughter disappeared the previous night and was thought to be in the Chicagoland area. We retained LRI on Sunday around 2:00 pm. To our amazement, my clients’ daughter was in the custody of LRI by 8:00 pm that evening. The investigators then drove through the night to return my client’s daughter to the safety of her parents. Later that week, LRI served two of the individuals involved with Orders of Protection ensuring their daughter’s continued safety.


I highly recommend LRI for their immediate response, advocacy, professionalism, and careful handling of a scared young girl.”
