Missing Persons in Thailand. We often receive requests for locating missing persons in Thailand. A missing person search seeks to discover parties who are out of contact. The missing person search can find long-lost friends, lovers, and relatives. Some quests involve adoption. For example, finding the birth parents of an individual. You may be a biological parent (birth mother, birth father) looking for children given up at birth for adoption. In some cases, information may be decades old. These cases are more challenging to work on but still solvable.

“However unpredictable they seem, most people are creatures of habit.”

Losing contact with a family member or loved one is a stressful situation. We understand how troubling this can be. Unfortunately, people do go missing in Thailand regularly. More often than not, they have neglected to stay in touch because they are having too much of a good time. So, they are unaware that loved ones back home are worried about them. They will almost always turn up somewhere unharmed. However, if you have lost contact with someone in Thailand, there are options available to you. You can seek professional help by contacting us. A Thailand private investigator can help you. With the right information, we can find anyone. Even the smallest clue can be a critical factor.

Find missing people in Thailand.


Knowing where to look is half the battle. Our investigators can help locate runaways, missing family members, kidnapped children, or other missing persons in Thailand. Finding missing persons in Thailand requires a lot of patience, professional training, and keen analytic skills. It also requires excellent human relationship skills. An understanding of human behavior is vitally important. Most people are creatures of habit. So, knowing a person’s likes, hobbies, and general tendencies is valuable in locating missing persons in Thailand.

Missing Persons in Thailand

Sometimes people vanish in Thailand without a trace. It often occurs when an unsuspecting foreign man on his first trip to Thailand gets caught up in the bar scene. He ends up overwhelmed with the promise of a fantasy lifestyle here in Thailand. For example, living with a pretty little thing, he met in a bar. It is a widespread problem and one we get asked to look into often. So, most of the time, we find a person in a rural village or farming town.

The scenario is always the same.  A man goes to Thailand and is available in the first few days or weeks. But then, for some reason, seems to go off the map without a trace. When this happens, the usual suspects appear. Those usual suspects are Thai bar girls. Contact us now. A Thailand Private Investigator can help you.

Missing Persons in Thailand

If a man gets involved with Thai bar girls, he can be led astray with promises of a new life in Thailand. For instance, an experience that is free of the stress and strain associated with Western countries. The problem for the man is that these women are so intense with their game. “I love you too much,” “I want to marry you,” is an approach that fools many guys. They fall right into the trap. The next thing you know, they are paying for apartments, motorbikes, and sometimes cars. Often they buy land for the woman’s family.  It happens all the time here. Especially in Pattaya.

It is why men turn up missing for extended periods. They stop calling home, no e-mail, etc. One day they were there, and everything was fine. The next day they seem to have vanished without a trace. It is this type of scenario that is described in most missing-person cases. The husband goes missing by falling prey to precisely this kind of trap — the Thai bar girl or prostitute with the sad sob story. The old story of poverty and destitution still works. It is a costly deception that usually ends up as a nightmare. A Thailand private investigator can help you.

Severe illness

One common reason people turn up missing in Thailand is falling victim to a sudden illness. For example, being in an out-of-the-way place like rural areas of Thailand when they get sick. Thailand is a tropical region. Diseases like Dengue, Malaria, and Typhoid are typical here. They can strike anyone at any time. If someone you know goes missing in Thailand, there is a good possibility they have become very ill. They could be in a very rural area of Thailand and can’t make it to an Internet cafe to send an E-mail. They may even be too ill to make a phone call or send a text message. So, if you lost contact with a loved one, contact us.


Another reason that can be attributed to missing persons in Thailand is alcoholism. Mental instability is also a possibility.  Foreign men who become depressed go missing in Thailand. They often go on extended binges of drinking and, at times, will even resort to drug use. They end up spending all their money on alcohol and prostitutes to try and drown their sorrows. But end up making things far worse and in some cases will even take their own lives.

We’ve seen this happen many times before in Thailand. Local newspapers report stories like this every day, especially in Pattaya. This kind of thing seems to happen more in Pattaya than anywhere else in Thailand. But of course, you won’t know until you have an investigation done to determine the facts. A Thailand private investigator can help you.

Information is key

While it does seem the world is getting smaller, Thailand is a big country. Communications and infrastructure in many parts of the country are still underdeveloped. So, the more information we have, the better. Hundreds of thousands of foreigners live in Thailand and millions more visit every year. So, it can be difficult and time-consuming to find someone. If we can locate your friend or relative, we will ask that person to get in touch with you.

A few key factors determine the level of difficulty in a missing person search. Firstly, how common is the person’s name? Secondly, name changes in Thailand are frequent. Women generally change their names when they get married. Some people in Thailand take advice from so-called Psychics. In such instances, the task becomes more difficult as the person may have changed names more than once. The real-time missing person that has recently disappeared requires a different strategy. In these cases, agents in the field must “do the footwork” while looking for the missing person.
