This is a tough situation. You may want to resort to retaining a private investigator if information is not shared. As there is no law requiring a person to share their information with anyone other than the IRS and other governmental agencies (and those records are typically private). There three options that remain would be the county courthouse where the person resided, the department or records, and the postal service. Typically the courthouse may have a wealth of information on the person that is available if you simply ask for it. Similarly you can obtain information from the county recording office since last know addresses are recorded there as well. Finally you can contact the USPS and find out if the person left a new address where they could be mailed a package directly.
Hope that helps.
Yes, a police officer can check the driver's license information to see if it is valid. But he cannot simply run a search without cause as it would be a violation of his powers.
