People tracing specialists such as ours since relish such challenges. Indeed, we have been doing it now for more than 5 decades.


However, be under no illusion to find old friends far from a walk in the park. There are more than 60, 000 million people in the UK to chose from.

That old expression: “Needle in a Haystack,” springs to mind!

Trace a missing old buddy


Longing for A long lost friend is a powerful and emotive force to be reckoned with.


If you seriously want to find missing friends the big question is -how! Do you sit and wait for them to find you? Or do you go proactive and search for that special old friend? Or, perhaps, combine a bit of both.


Throughout our lives, we often and inadvertently, ‘turn our backs’ on good friends.


A current love quickly becomes a past love. We turn away, and they are gone. This happened more frequently during the pre-digital communication era.


What usually happens: A past love, teenage sweetheart or an old friend, gradually wandered/strayed off out of our lives.


These can be best described as:- ‘friends lost” by accident and without any intent. It just so often occurred in the old days. Mainly due to limited means of maintaining contact in those pre-digital era days.

Findng Old Friends UK | Lets Go


Option 1. Sit -back and wait for them to find you. It sounds a good idea but it means that they (the other party) have to show the initiative and drive, to actively seek you out. Not just thinking about it but- actually DOING – IT.


This involves them sitting down and thinking about it/you. Then posting on say Facebook or, numerous other digital sites. In addition posting on “old school friends, workplaces and any amount of other places. 


Maybe asking around with a mutual old friend that you are both still in touch with. Once all that has been done it’s then a case of simply waiting and hoping.

Hoping your lost friend – by a miracle will find you?


To be brutally frank (unless you strike lucky) there is a big task ahead of you to find them.


There are millions of similar sites out there. The chances that your old friend will be looking for you, and deciding at the same time to post on one of the vast numbers of people search websites out there, are slim. Frankly, it’s a million to one chance.  

We often see postings on people finder sites such as:

Option 1.

Trying to find my dad’s old friend George…..bla-bla….. not seen since 1965 in  Bolton, Lancs.


What are the chances of George, or someone who knew him 50 years ago actually going on to that same site at the same time, as you are on it!


It might work if you were both ‘psychic ‘and knew you were both going to register on that same site, at the same time. To be frank we question the value of many of these people-finder search websites. Not that their intentions are in any way insincere, but we don’t see how they can work.

Option 2.


Same as option 1. But turning it around on its head. Instead you-play the active role.

Option 3.


Ideally but unlikely you both set about the task independently. This way you should logically obtain a positive result 50% quicker.



If you have lost an old friend in the seething masses of millions, don’t hang around waiting for them to contact you. Instead, go out and find them.  If both of you do nothing then you will both achieve nothing.


We suggest contacting a specialist organization that offers people tracing professionally. Or there are a number of DIY guide books out there.
