There is a process called a curatorship whereby this can be done. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible to get the process started because it can take a while.

You will need to do what is known as a "divorce by publication". It is not easy or cheap.

I recommend you make a motion to the court asking for substituted service. Normally you can serve the last known residence, but in this case it would make sense to address this issue with the court because service of the Summons and Complaint must be made to proceed with the divorce. Proof of service is required to file the documents needed to obtain a Judgment of Divorce.
