Try sending a letter stating your interest to the address of the property with the name shown on the tax records. See if you get a reply. On your letter write return service requested. Maybe the owner has the property as a second vacation home. They probably have their mail to that address forwarded.
Two more things to check:
Go to the post office and see the name they have on record for that address.
The library has a criss cross guide at the reference desk which gives you a name for that address.
