A: In this type of case we use her last address or serve her by publication. I think it would be best to seek the emergency temporary custody and seek either a dependency case or an unfitness custody case. Please feel free to call at 440-213-3184 should you have further questions.

A: You can use her last known, or a process called service by publication where they take out classified adds for a few days when a person is impossible to find.
