How do you find people you've lost?

After an absence of many years, I have returned to Washington State. I did a poor job of keeping in touch while gone, and now I've lost contact with most of my old friends. I've managed to find a few by searching networking sites or contacting family, but many more remain missing.
I'm interested in what steps to take when searching for someone through the obvious channels fails. My old crowd has scattered, and I couldn't say what town a few of them live in now. I've only myself to blame for being a flaky friend, but I don't think I'll feel like I've "come home" to Washington until I reconnect with some of the people who made home what it was.
