MISSING/SOUGHT PERSONS

Missing/sought persons must NOT be confused with persons that FSG is instructed to trace for the purposes of debt recovery (which we do through the application of our STANDARD TRACE PROCEDURE ['STP'])
 

By missing persons we mean persons whose whereabouts are suddenly unaccounted for as the result of being a victim of criminal acts, accidents, mental illness/dementia, and persons regarded as "runaways" (who are most often teenagers and abused children/spouses).
 

By sought persons we also mean the likes of the beneficiaries of deceased estates/pension fund surpluses and the shareholders of public companies whose details have become "lost" over the passage of time, and the likes of biological parents seeking children they previously gave up for adoption, and adopted children seeking their biological parents.

 

It follows that a sought person is not necessarily a missing person. However, because we employ largely the same strategies/protocols to locate both missing and sought persons, we regard locating missing and sought persons as one category of investigation and one product of the service bouquet of FSG, although in the case of missing persons we add to our mandate the responsibility that we do not return a found missing person to an abusive environment without also ensuring that some appropriate form of intervention is also introduced to address the abusive environment.

 

In addition to having developed strategies and protocols for locating different categories of missing/ sought persons, FSG has also established several networks that we can activate within minutes to assist to locating missing/sought persons. These include:

All border control points.

Liaison structures with senior SAPS officials, such that we can post a "missing person" poster in the Community Service Centre of every police station in SA within 24 hours.

NGO’s and NPO's that exist for the sole purpose of locating missing/sought adults or children, who themselves have effective networks that FSG can share. A particular example of one such organization is THE PINK LADIES to whom we volunteer our services, (Follow the link emedded in the word and look them up on the internet. We encourage all to support  them. Our CEO of and the founder of THE PINK LADIES, Dessie aka 'Nana' Reicher, have built a relationship over many years such that FSG vouches for them in every way possible. Dessie is an incredible woman who, in her sixties, took it upon herself to found The Pink Ladies - armed with nothing more than grit, willpower and compassion.)

 

FSG has always held the belief that there is no-one who cannot be found, as long as our client has the capacity – and is willing to do so – to resource FSG financially to do all that has to be done to locate a missing/sought person. It is also the case that FSG can proudly claim that it has NEVER failed to locate a missing/sought person under circumstance that our client has provided the financial resources required for us to do all that is necessary to locate a missing/sought person:

FSG has often located missing persons for THE PINK LADIES, to whom we volunteer our services. Dessie was moved to establish the PINK LADIES to support the family and assist in the search for SHELDEAN HUMAN when she was abducted (and later found murdered) in 2007. Her murder was caught and convicted, and recently was murdered in his prison cell; a bit of poetic justice, according to Dessie ...

FSG has often located sought persons who have unknowingly become the beneficiary of a deceased estate. The most recent example was the mother of a Zimbabwean man who came to South Africa, won the lottery and was killed in a car accident. It was established that his biological mother was still alive, but all that was know of her was her name and that 20 years ago she lived in a certain town in Zimbabwe. We had to visit Zimbabwe to find her, and set aside 11 days for the task. However, we found her within four hours of arriving in Zimbabwe! And of course, what a pleasure it was to be instrumental in handing over a life-changing sum of money.

Some years ago we were hired by the legal team of a businessman who was accused of sexually abusing his daughter some twenty years after the fact, under circumstance that there was compelling evidence that the estranged wife of the businessman (and the mother of the daughter) had put the daughter up to this in a malicious effort to discredit our client. Proving his innocence turned on locating a witness for whom all that was known was his first name and a 20 year old address. We found the witness and our client was found not guilty.

bullet

A few years ago a Swedish businessman (who started out as a penniless hippie in south London) approached us to locate his daughter, who he had last seen on the day of her birth, and who would turn 18 in just a few weeks. The child was born of a brief relationship he had had in the UK with a South African woman who was touring the UK some 19 years earlier. All we had to work with was the mother's name and the fact that she was of South African descent. Our client had purchased a gift for his unknown daughter for each of her birthdays, and all he wanted was the opportunity to introduce himself and hand over his gifts - and he had waited for her 18th birthday so that she would be old enough to decide for herself whether she wanted to meet him or not. It took us about three weeks to find the daughter. She was living with her mother (who became married after she returned to South Africa) in a small town on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast. Our CEO, Jardine, dealt with this case personally, and the memory of putting father and daughter together on the daughter's 18th birthday at an hotel in Umhlanga Rocks is one that still brings tears to his eyes!

 

Some of these stories end well;  a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; a joyful reunion that brings tears to the eye. But some of these stories have also ended with the discovery of the lifeless body of a child, regrettably, more than once...
