There are online searches that can do the trick for you, but the majority are scams. Basically, if they're free or instant, you can rest assured that the results aren't the current ones on file with your state. There are laws protecting driver registration information, so you'd need to place an online license plate search with private investigators who have access to vehicle ownership records with the DMV. The prices are usually marginal, around $30-$40 dollars and the results come in pretty quickly.

How do i get a title switched over if the person i bought it from hasn't switched it over and we cant find the owner that is shown on the title?

Why would you buy a vehicle from someone who does not have clear title? Take the vehicle back to the person who had no right to sell it in the first place and get your money back. They did not meet all the terms of the contract in that they failed to provide clear title; therefore, the contract of purchase and sale is null and void. Next time ensure that the person who is selling you a vehicle, actually owns the vehicle. Good Lord!
