Private investigators are equipped to identify facts and analyze information that they gather, often regarding legal, financial and personal matters. Sometimes private investigators work separate from the police department and other times they work in conjunction with law enforcement to solve open or cold cases. Private investigators are often tasked with searching for a lost or missing relative, participate in gathering evidence to present at custody battles, or investigate possible incidents of insurance fraud, computer crimes and/or instances of stalking or harassment.[ref]
