A: This is no a legal problem; it is a ancient personal problem that cannot be solved by lawyers here on Justia. However, I will tell you that there are lawyers and others who can perform miracles doing "skip-tracing" (finding deadbeats); hire one.

A: You should be able to call the Social Security Administration and they can search using an Alphadent query. They'll need his full name, DOB, place of birth, parents names, and mothers maiden name. Protection under the Privacy Act ends upon death, so they should be ok to release it. At least they were when I worked at SSA 10 years ago.
