The drawback to the options listed above is that they all primarily focus on the U. I’ve had little luck finding resources for international searches.
If you have any suggestions, please share them in the comments.
For many people, you’ll quickly find a profile on Facebook, a blog or even an email address you can use to get in touch.
But a Google search doesn’t turn up good results for everyone.
Unfortunately, there’s still not a particularly good tool for searching such sites — even if you’re willing to pay.
Unfortunately, you may find yourself in need of Inmate Search — while the site isn’t pretty, it includes a list of contact information for each state’s system for finding inmates, as well as the federal system.After the free trial, using that button and some of the site’s other features cost per month.If you’re willing to do a little more legwork by calling up the company listed and seeing if you can ask for a direct number or email address, you can generally skip paying that fee.Particularly helpful is Pipl’s ability to search withing a specific city, state or zip code.If you know the geographic location of the person in question, you’ll be able to narrow down search results to that area.
However, I know the price tag (often starting around $40) can be off-putting, especially if you’re only casually searching or if you need to find information on a long list of people.
