What’s in a Name?

The truth was hiding in plain sight.

Was their information incorrect, or had the rightful heirs simply disappeared? When two lawyers couldn’t locate the men named in an estate search, they turned to HeirSearch.


It was as though Dyson Tyler and Kelly Thomas had never existed. 

Two lawyers had been searching for male heirs named Dyson and Kelly but were repeatedly unsuccessful in finding any information about them. After exhausting all of their resources, the lawyers were still unable to find anything about the missing heirs. That’s when HeirSearch took over the case.

An exhaustive estate search leads to a new approach

The lawyers had assumed that Dyson and Kelly were male names, and had conducted all of their research with this assumption. After exhausting every lead, HeirSearch experts decided to try searching for two women instead.

To the lawyers’ surprise — and embarrassment — Dyson Tyler and Kelly Thomas weren’t male names, but female! HeirSearch was able to locate the missing heirs, and the relieved lawyers could close the case.
