“I was trying to sell my house but the sale was being jammed up by a tenant who decided not to move out. I hired Abijah to help me with the situation. Within a few days, he put together a deal that everyone was happy with and the tenant moved out immediately. Highly recommended!" Click to read more reviews.

5-Step Location Process

Step #1: Interview


This interview will be conducted over the phone. During this interview:

We’ll have an in-depth discussion about who you want to locate, why you want to locate them, and what you want to happen after they’re located.

I’ll gather all the documentation you have on this person (online profiles, paperwork, videos, photos, etc.)

I’ll provide you with an estimate of the time & cost for the investigation.

Step #2: Research


During the research phase, I will use a variety of tools and techniques to gather information about where the person is likely to be. This is usually done by piecing together information from the following sources:

Vehicle registration

Search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing)

Social media (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, TikTok)

Proprietary databases available only to licensed private investigators

Public records (criminal records, court records, birth records, death records, marriage records, business records, licensing records, permit records, property records)

Step #3: Tracking


This is where I take all the information gathered during the interview and research steps, compile it into a map of all the places the person is likely to be, and start physically searching for them in those places.

This usually involves one or more of the following (depending on the situation):

Visiting addresses they’re likely to be at (friends, family, significant others, neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances, favorite hangout spots)

Conducting covert undercover operations to track down the person (stakeouts & baiting)

Speaking with people I meet during the investigation about the person’s whereabouts

Step #4: Action


Once I’ve located them, I’ll perform one or more of the following actions:

Process Service – Delivering legal documents to this person

Wellness Check – Determining if this person is alive and well

Surveillance – Observing this person and documenting their actions

Reunion – Arranging a meeting between you and this person

Step #5: Report


At the end of the week, you’ll receive a report with some or all of the following information:

Documentation of what has been accomplished (photos, videos, written reports)

Recommendations for next steps and estimated timelines (if any next steps are necessary)

Receipts for the costs of conducting your investigation (items, services, software, mileage, and lodging)

About

Abijah Christos


I grew up in the Puget Sound area (moving between the cities of Seattle, Shoreline, and Lynnwood). My mom was always watching detective shows (Columbo, Hercule Poirot, Murder She Wrote, etc.) or marathons of old James Bond films. I’m pretty sure some of that rubbed off on me and is why I have an inherent fascination with private investigation.

Before I became a private investigator, I’ve had quite a few careers: martial arts instructor, door-to-door canvasser, furniture salesman, uber driver, plumber, and janitor. But there were two careers that really had a huge impact on my private investigation career:

1. I was a marketing consultant for 10 years. During this time I routinely uncovered the private information of individuals (psychological profiles, demographic data, phone numbers, email addresses, home addresses, etc) using a variety of research tools and techniques. I then used this information to locate specific types of customers and craft highly targeted marketing campaigns that would make them buy what I was selling. This skillset has proved to be invaluable when it comes to locating hard to find people for my private investigation clients.

2. I owned & operated a hostel for 3 years. I managed multiple properties that had a total of 38 guests. Being a hostel owner taught me how to deal with chaotic situations on a daily basis. From stopping fights between guests, to investigating who stole someone’s phone, to dealing with the bodies of guests who died in their sleep. Many of the problems I dealt with while running these hostels are similar to the problems I face as a private investigator – from the intensity of the problems I have to deal with, to the on-the-spot solutions I need to come up with to solve those problems.

I love being a private investigator because I get to help people solve difficult, high-stress, and sometimes dangerous problems they can't solve on their own. Being able to come through for someone when they really need you is one of the most exhilarating experiences in life. Those moments where you’re truly needed by another human being. My purpose in life is found in those moments.

"And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff. I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." ~ Catcher In The Rye
