    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Wills are probated in the county where the decedent resided at his death. So you can call a bunch of county register of wills. Also, why not do a google search of Daniel and ask him what is going on or where the estate is located. Finally, get an estate litigation or probate attorney involved immediately.

    Answered . You may hire a lawyer who can put a private investigator on the case.

    That is done all the time.
