Ways of finding contact information of someone living in the Philippines include using the online directory White Pages Philippines, searching social media site Facebook, and using search engines specific to the Philippines, such as PeopleSearch.ph. Another way is hiring a local private investigator.
White Pages Philippines requires users to input the person's first and last name, and search results show names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. A 2014 research study indicated that about 37 percent of the country's population have Facebook accounts, which makes the site a useful tool for finding residents.
PeopleSearch.ph provides online resources for locating people primarily in the Philippines, including relatives and long lost friends. Although engaging the services of an investigator is an expensive option, he may be worth the investment considering his experience and familiarity of the local setting, which outsiders do not necessarily have.
