Full Answer

The companies that have an online search function can use different details to help locate a single individual in the United States. Some of these websites only need the name or phone number of the person in question. For some of the more common names, such as John Smith, the site may require additional details like their age or last known location. These details let the site generate a more complete list of possible matches. Most websites let people complete a basic search for any public information. For example, the White Pages has the name, business or address for anyone who has a public number, which can also include their cell phone. Other websites offer a free service for locating the general area for people, and they may even have addition information for free, such as police records. Any type of public record can be found for free; it is just a matter of determination to find the results. In some cases, it is best to use a few websites to find the information, because this makes it is easier to verify the results.
