How can I claim the money from an old, uncashed paycheck?

My father has finally broken decades of pack-rattery and started to clean out old drawers full of envelopes and mail. Among things he's found is an old, uncashed paycheck from roughly 15 years ago.
The check was issued to him from a company which has since been bought out; the acquiring company is still in business. He made some preliminary phone calls about the check, but nobody has been cooperative and he's asked me to intervene on his behalf. How should I proceed?
