Child Custody Investigation
- Child custody investigations are conducted by MN-BIA's Director and chief investigator.
- This process begins with extensive background records check followed with in-person fact-finding interviews with all parties including school personnel, caregivers, relatives, court-appointed Guardian Ad Leitum, and other social agencies.
- Investigations seek to confirm or rule out the false accusations. Impaired and/or deceptive parents may make false accusations for a wealth of reasons. Parental allegations are tested along with physical and other collaborative evidence.
- MN-BIA seeks the whole and unbiased truth to ensure each child's safety and best long term interests are recognized.
Missing Person Investigation
MN-BIA's experience in locating people who do not want to be found (fugitives) lends similar methods to locate a missing person. The methods of OSINT, forensic interviews to gain HUMINT and data from license plate reader systems aid in this process.
Most states do not have a prescribed waiting period before reporting a missing person to law enforcement. The child's last seen location or their residence defines which law enforcement agency to immediately contact. MN-BIA collaborates with local, federal and private agencies throughout the investigative process including accessing search systems such as the National Missing and Unidentified Persons Data System (NamUs)
