Dear Customer, I am sorry to learn of this situation. If you are unable to contact this individual it is possible that you were fraudulently induced into giving your money to a false investment, and that the money was stolen from you. You can contact your local District Attorney, the police department, or report the matter to the Washington State Attorney General's Office: http://www.atg.wa.gov/page.aspx?id=1792#.UVsm2jehzr4
You may also institute a civil suit against these individuals for fraud and breach of contract. To do so you can file the suit yourself, or you can contact an attorney to help you.

The reason I contacted you was because I met the person while we were staying at an RV park on Rodeo Road in Casa Grande. The person supposedly has an office in Chandler, AZ. Should I contact someone in Arizona where that person is, or should I contact someone here in Washington, where I live?
I would try contacting the person in both places (it is not unusual in situations such as this to send certified letters to both (or all) known addresses).
If you have contact information for this individual in Arizona, and believe you can best get in touch with him in that state, you can hire a process server or private investigator to locate them relatively inexpensively if you do not have contact information readily available. Usually it is easiest if you use someone that is local to the individual (Arizona) to track the person down.
Thank you for the kind rating, it is greatly appreciated. I wish you the best of luck with this matter. If you have further questions regarding this type of issue, or any other legal matter, please do not hesitate to use our service in the future.
