The affidavit will set forth the attempts made to find the person, such as times and date of attempted service, efforts to locate the person through neighbors and much more. The purpose of such an affidavit is to show the court that all legal obligations to discharge a duty have been met, and possibly may justify alternative measures, such as service by publication.
