    I need to locate somebody asap. There are several people search services available so I'm not sure if one is better than another.

    Has anyone had success using a paid service and if so, which one?

      Jamy, are you looking to just do this quickly? Or do you have a little time to try a few things to see if you can find him on your own? The reason I ask is because I used to help adoption agencies locate people, and there's a few tips/resources I could email you....

      Let me know if you're interested.... otherwise, I'll go thru my list of paid search databases and send you some recommendations...

        Thanks for the reply Maria. If at all possible I want to do this within the next 2 weeks at the most. I'm not sure how long the paid services take so if you think I have time to explore the resources you have on my own I'm down to try.

        I have the full name, birthdate, & last known city/state of the person I am trying to locate. Email my yahoo when you get a chance, thanks so much!!

            Jamy just PM me the info and I'll look it up for you. It will take me 5 minutes. I have a database we use here at work. I should be able to find the person for you quickly.

                    If all else fails, because you have the full name, you could try an address search website (If you haven't tried this yet that is). They usually also turn up the phone number. Some I've used for a project at work are:
                    People Search | Yellow Pages | White Pages | Reverse Phone Lookup
                    White Pages Phone Directory with Free People Search
                    and
                    Yellow Pages Online Phone Book Local Business Listings Directory | DexKnows.com
                    Good luck, I hope you find the person!
