Testimonials Testimonials

Testimonials are always welcome when we have success. They are what we always hope for. Although some of us have experience over decades, since we started as Impartial Investigations in 2020, we have had some great successes. As well as our fraud investigations, which we cannot publicly mention yet, we have found various people who have been missing for a long time.

Testimonial – brother found after 50 years

In early 2021, we were asked by a Scottish man, Mr T, who was living in Australia, if we could find his brother, Alan T. They had not spoken for 51 years which was when the missing brother was in university in Edinburgh. Our client had tried on social media for many years without success. We took it on after speaking on a video link call to Mr T. We started the usual checks on the Phone Book, the electoral roll, social media as well, but because the missing brother had a common name and surname, we had many hundreds of possibles.  After contacting many of the possibles, after a couple of months, we narrowed it down to a man in Paisley or a chap in Lancashire. We wrote to them both. Nope, not them either. It seemed hopeless.

It was just then we began subscribing to a database which is particularly useful if you have a date of birth. Being his brother, our client had a DOB for Alan. First sweep, bingo. Same name, same date of birth, in South London. Had lived there for 30 years. Boom. Royal Mail was extremely slow due to Covid-related backlogs. We emailed a letter to a courier company near him and within the hour they sent a bike round with our letter.

Our investigator John will always remember later that amazing morning when he was sippng his coffee and the phone rang. The caller said: “This is Alan. I believe you’re looking for me.” John nearly fell off his chair. After being missing for 51 years, Alan had phoned us within minutes of getting the letter. We may have popped a cork after that phone call. The brothers are now in touch and hope to meet soon.

Testimonials like this gladden the heart. In February 2021, the brother who is our client wrote on the forum Missing People Scotland“GREAT NEWS……. A couple of months ago, I posted that I was looking for my long lost brother Alan. John MacIver (of Impartial Investigations) started the process of locating him and yesterday, John contacted me to say contact had been made. I must say that John’s way of going about his business was meticulous, honest and ethical. It took a while but his company never gave up and I am very thankful to him.”

Success – brother found after 10 years

Gus Macfarlane had been looking for his brother Colin for more than 10 years. We followed up a lot of leads until we finally struck gold. Colin phoned us and asked: “Who is looking for me?” After an emotional phone call between them, Gus wrote on Missing People Scotland: “I must thank John MacIver for him and his company (Impartial Investigations) for locating my brother Colin McFarlane whom l had been searching for over 10 years and last week we were in contact with each other.” They have since met up. We are so pleased for you guys.

Testimonial – son found after 11 years

In April 2021, a client in India asked us to find a family member last heard of studying in Scotland seven years ago. There were enough clues in communications with his family from years ago to follow them up. We had to visit various addresses in central Scotland until we got a positive lead. That lead promised to pass on a message. He did. The next day, the missing man called us. He had experienced difficulties but he promised to contact his family back in India. Another excellent result.

Testimonials are welcome but obviously, not all our searches have happy endings. Sometimes people just cannot be found for various reasons. Sometimes it is all too late and the person being searched for has passed away. That is why we always say do not put it off. Start searching yourself, if you wish, and if you get stuck, come to us. We will do our best for you.

Evidence of some of these successes is available on request for bona fide enquiries. However, if a client asks that we do not publicise anything, we will always honour that. We love it when clients praise us and then post it publicly and let us publish it too. We are very grateful for that.
