Including – Witness and Debtor Location

When it is not possible to locate a witness or debtor, the whole proceedings at hand can come to a standstill and in Missing Persons matters, an individual’s or family’s life could be changed forever by the location of a loved one.

Many Investigators, Process Servers and Commercial Agents simply do not have the requisite skills to locate ‘skips’ or missing persons.

In this regard, we are absolutely confident that our investigative background and 49 + years of experience means we are the right choice over our competitors.

All of our Agents involved in skip tracing and location enquiries are also licensed Private Inquiry Agents with the ability to conduct a range of investigations above and beyond that of a Mercantile Agent. They are also in a position to professionally carry out surveillance where required, which is often a necessary tool in skip tracing.

The nature of our enquiries may include, but are not limited to:-

  • Approaches to current occupants of a given address;
  • Approaches to current owners of a given address;
  • Approaches to neighbours;
  • Approaches to local shops and hotels, etc. (particularly if a smaller, close-knit community);
  • Research of employment history;
  • Discreet enquiries with any available references;
  • Database searches.

Skip tracing requires specialised skills for an effective success rate to avoid ‘throwing good money after bad’ so far as debts are concerned, and of course with respect to missing persons (particularly involving a family member or old friend) it is imperative that our Investigators achieve results with these matters of the heart. In this respect, we certainly have the right credentials in this highly sensitive area.

For further assistance, please contact the Mona Vale office of Cox Commercial Services on (02) 9997-4122. 


Part of effective Skip Tracing involves database searches. In this respect, we have direct on-line access to the following:-

  • A.S.I.C.
  • ABN Lookup
  • Land and Property Information (Australia-wide)
  • White Pages
  • Reverse Phones
  • Electoral Roll based search engines
  • Google
  • Social Media

Having access to these databases is important. However, equally so is the experience and knowledge to examine and understand the search results, particularly regarding ‘cross-matching’ of data.

Combined with professional Operatives in the field, we offer the very best in witness and debtor location or missing persons investigations.
