The term “skip” (as a noun) basically means an individual who is being searched for, and is taken out from the idiomatic expression “to skip town”, denoting to depart (probably7 in a rush), having minimal clues behind to “trace” the “skip” to a new location of the person.

Skip tracing approaches may be used by a debt collector, process server, bail bondsman or bail agency enforcer (bounty hunters), repossession agent, private investigator, lawyer, police detective, journalist, stalker or by any individual looking to locate a subject whose contact details are not immediately known.

For instance, a real estate investor may employ skip tracing methods in the way of forwarding direct mail so as to get interested sellers and great real estate deals. 

When you decide to send large number of mailers at a time, it's not rare to get a few (or sometimes, A LOT of) mail pieces back in your mailbox as unsent. Sometimes, mailers get back to the sender because of an incorrect an improper address, but more often, it's due to the point that another person is no longer available at the address, and the U.S. post office has any clue where they've gone.

In order to find out the new whereabouts of a person, you'll need to start with what little information you have (generally their name and/or their incorrect mailing address) and use it to find one or more of the following:
•    Their present mailing address
•    Their contact number(s)
•    Their email address(es)
