OmniTrace is a Florida Licensed Private Investigation Agency (A2200304). We are members of:

OmniTrace incorporated in Florida over 10 years ago.  We provide our nationwide services to attorneys, businesses and the public (You can visit our consumer website HERE.)


What Does OmniTrace Do?

OmniTrace is one of the nation’s leaders at locating missing people.  We have successfully found—unnamed and named witnesses, birth parents, adoptees, lost heirs, old friends, lost loves, missing persons, military buddies, patients lost from clinical trials, etc.


So, You Are A People Search Company. Why Would My Firm Use Your Services For Our Asbestos Cases?

When a person has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer or another asbestos related disease, and a law suit is filed, it is critical to find coworkers of the plaintiff fast.

Our unsurpassed, specialized ability to find missing people allows us to identify and locate previously unknown co-workers of your plaintiff client (as well as locate already named coworkers).  No one comes close to our capabilities.

Provide us a facility where your client was employed, and we will conduct industrial genealogy and employment research to identify witnesses who will make your case.  We have successfully identified thousands of unnamed co-workers, many who worked at facilities long closed, dating as far back as the 1930s!

Our investigative staff has 25 years of combined experience assisting Plaintiff attorneys win more legal cases and maximize their plaintiff awards.
