Tracing Agent Case Study #1:

Location: London

The Brief

At Bond Rees, we are a renowned private investigations and tracing agency known for completing thousands of successful tracing jobs across the UK. Our tracing agents were called by a client seeking to locate ex-military personnel for a reunion event. The client provided limited information, including names, approximate ages, and last known locations of the individuals. Bond Rees took on the challenge to trace these ex-military personnel efficiently and discreetly.

Investigation Process

Initial Research: Bond Rees tracing agents started by conducting thorough online research using specialised databases and social media platforms to gather any available information on the ex-military personnel.

Utilising Military Networks: Leveraging our network of contacts within the military community, we reached out to former colleagues and associations to gather leads on the whereabouts of the individuals.

Field Investigation: In cases where online information was scarce, we deployed field investigators to visit known addresses, local military bases, and relevant community centres to gather first-hand information.

Surveillance: In instances where the ex-military personnel were particularly hard to locate, we employed surveillance techniques to track their movements discreetly.


Bond Rees successfully located all the ex-military personnel within the agreed timeframe. Through a combination of online research, networking within military circles, field investigations, and surveillance when necessary, the company was able to reunite the client with their former comrades for the long-awaited event.


The case of tracing ex-military personnel for a reunion event showcased Bond Rees’ expertise in investigative techniques and their commitment to delivering results for their clients. By employing a multi-faceted approach that combined technology, human intelligence, and fieldwork, Bond Rees demonstrated their ability to handle complex cases with precision and professionalism.

This case study highlights Bond Rees’ dedication to fulfilling client needs while upholding the highest standards of confidentiality and efficiency in their investigative work.

Tracing Agent Case Study #2:

Location: Manchester

What we did

We were recently hired by a man trying to trace his secondary school crush in Manchester, years after they had parted ways. People grow apart as they get older, and many find themselves wanting to reconnect even years later. However, a change of name or a big move can make contacting people difficult. This was the case in this instance, as the school crush had since changed her name after marriage and our client was unsure how to even begin tracing her.

How we did it

Our tracing agents used a combination of online documentation and social media to locate the person in question. We were able to follow a trail of tagged photos and posts by family and friends to find her new name and use this to find her current contact details. 


Our client was delighted with our work and happy to be able to reconnect with an old friend. As it turns out, she was divorced and single. The rekindling of the relationship was welcomed and we achieved a happy ending in the process.
