To locate a person, do a person search for the current address from the last known address.
You can do this with the driver license record of the person missing. To obtain this record, most states require not only the full name but the date of birth. The driver license record should have the current home address of the person missing. The record may also contain his or her driving record which would contain information such as: accidents, suspensions, revocations, etc. This additional information may be helpful in doing your person search. A vehicle identification number will come in handy to find a current address when doing a person search for a person who still has the same vehicle that he or she had before the disappearance.
Even though the vehicle may have a new license plate, the vehicle identification number doesn’t change. The number is found by getting a copy of the vehicle title and registration that was issued before he or she disappeared. You can use this number to traced the current license number and address to do a person search. Write to the state department of motor vehicle records for the vehicle identification number and driver license record in every state in which it seems logical where the missing person could be. Not every state will allow you to see the record, but the majority will.
