Our journey commenced whilst investigating a missing child investigation in 2018, Luke and his team assisted local, federal and missing person investigation units to successfully recover a four year old child from a child abduction syndicate. This investigation case was one of Australia’s largest and most complex investigations Luke and his team has seen in their careers.
Luke and his team worked so well together that they decided to join forces and open a new division in Melbourne to help solve more cases and help more people find justice – and in 2018 they founded Melbourne Confidential.
Melbourne Confidential holds the largest information-gathering database system in Australia. Our three man team work together on every case and unlike other investigation companies who outsource their services; we do the majorities of the investigations ourselves, because we love what we do.
We have local experience investigating within Melbourne and Victoria, but also draw on our experience working in other areas of Australia as well as our access to National data. Our head office is based in Malvern Victoria and our satellite office in NSW.

Approx. 2.5 months ago Private Investigator Luke Athens from Melbourne Confidential was assigned to a new case shortly after solving the longest missing person case in Australia known as Daphne Perl Hampstead. His new case takes the word “solving” to a new era of investigations.
Even though Luke, in his entire career of 25 years has never had a case that he was unable to solve, he has come up with a new challenge in where he is required to locate a young, beautiful Vietnamese refugee girl that entered Australia in the early 80’s with no identification.
Mr. Athens now sets off on his biggest challenge of his career till date in finding Kim who went missing one late evening in 1985 from Elizabeth Hospital, South Australia.
