Thank you for your question!First of all, you should document to the Tribunal all your attempts to find the whereabouts of her, including the several possible internet research. After that, you can ask the Tribunal and/Diocese to publish a notice in the Diocesan paper requesting her presence in the Chancery. If you provide a consistent amount of documents, it is possible to go ahead with the trial depending of of the ground of the nullity. The Tribunal would choose or prefer some ground on your side to help to arrive to a final decision.
