Help with finding owner of house

Our friend at 9209 3rd Street,Lanham, MD had a life threatening situation and was put in a nursing home about 5 years ago.  We heard she is permanently in a group home.  In the past year we have seen people taking pictures,entering the home, and some contractors taking things out.  A lawn service cuts the grass but not the bushes. I asked them who sent them out and they said the bank but didn't know which one and had no number.  We've had some problems on the property and have called the police.  They said unless the owner is complaining, they can't do anything. How can the owner complain if no one lives there and no one knows who the owner is. I've looked up the property on the county records and it still lists our friend.  We were told at our neighborhood meeting to just talk to any real estate agent and they can give us the information. Is there anyway someone can provide us with a contact number?  Linda McStowe (mcstowes@aol.com) and neighbors on 3rd Street.

You may need to take a trip to the county courthouse yourself. 

Often the employees there are very helpful. Explain the situation to them.  Ask them how to look up any law suits, legal actions, Lis Pendes or other actions against the owner or the address.  Most everything is on the computer in the courthouse.

If the owner had a reverse mortgage that bank might have taken possession of the home but has not filed a new deed.  You can also look up any mortgages which might have been on the property to see if there was a lien holder who might have taken possession.
