Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Your employer is requried by the IRS to provide with a W-2, and also provide you with an additional copy if one is lost. Have your tried contacting them? Could they have mailed it to a prior address?

They told you to contact their payroll service provider? Providing you the W-2 is the employer's responsibility, and a payroll company only helps them to meet their obligations. You should tell your former employer to call the payroll company. I imagine the a payroll company like ADP or Paychex would not talk with you without the company's permission, so I would push the former employer to get one, or else it risks facing IRS penalties.
