Customer Question

I have an outlet downstairs that is not working. When i check it, it shows no power to the outlet. Is there a way to check where the wires for the outlet come from and where they are going to? I do not think there is a broken wire in the wall. I suspect the wire might have come loose in one of the other boxes but with out any power I am at a loss how to trouble shoot. Any help would be appreciated.
