Finding a Lost Relative?

I am trying to get a hold of my ex-stepfather's son in Florida. Last I heard, he lived in the Tampa area. His name is Michael James Kendrick (age 48 I believe). I have been trying for over a year to find him on social media and all of the numbers I have looked up for him didn't pan out (either disconnected or no longer in service). I have bad news about his father that I felt he should know. Any ideas how I can find him? I'm out of ideas.

A straight Google search of the name yielded a lot of info and men in that age range in other states.

I usually search for clues like what I can glean from general info and then start piecing info together.

It helps to know one more piece like high school or college name or mother's name, even just a first name. I am the reseacher for my high school reunions and today 98% of people can get found. It just takes some time and looking at the free sites for clues.

Then once you have a better idea, 411.com for phone numbers.

Best of luck. Post back what you learn!

Try putting his name in familytreennow.com. You will get names of relatives, current and past addresses and phone numbers, provided the person has not opted out.

From your message it does not appear that you actually know this person and you do not say how long it has been since anyone knew of his whereabouts so it is possible he is not interested in being found or not interested in obtaining information about his relatives.

If it has been several years since he made contact it will be difficult to find him unless he is doing some searching also.
I would suggest you try to find anyone who could have been in contact with him in recent years (his mother or other relatives?) so you can know if you are even searching in the right area.
Perhaps the person that gave the Florida information can provide other names to look for.
Do you know what type of work he does?
Tampa is a very large area but you may be able to find him through public utility records. This is a long shot but it can be done through public records for Tampa area. You may have to go county by county instead of city.

Here are a couple of sites that offer information but relatives or past friends are still the best resources.
