Private Investigations and Personal Security/Missing Person


I have been searching for my husbands grandfater.  My father-in-law hasn't seen his father since he was seven.  I have his name, birthday and social security number.  I tried an address and phone search.  The results I got, I called but the individuals were not the ones I was looking for.  I tried looking him up in the social security death index with no results.  I also tried checking out the federal inmates database search, but found nothing.   I have thought of hiring a private investigator, but do not have the money.  Do you have any ideas on what I could do to further my search?  I seem to have hit a brick wall.


He could have passed away by now and still not be in the SSN Death Index, moved outside the U.S., etc., so you will probably have to spend some money to try and locate him.  Here are several useful suggestions:
