Give an affidavit in court that the address is the only known address and the same is available in bank records of accused as well and no other address is known to you. and request the court to initiate the proceedings of P.O. . simultaneously keeping searching at your own level, once accused is declared, obtain the copy of order and once his address is known to you , you can seek assistance of police.
Also you can file a suit for recovery within 3 years of cause of action and once decreed, its execution can be obtained till 12 years which is very long time.

You can send summons to his original address and make sure they are delivered then try to make him proclaimed offender so a criminal case is filed against him.in the meanwhile try to find his correct address through pan card and aadhar

First try to search from your sources where the party has moved or could be traced. Then send a notice to the last known address of the person. If he doesn't receive then court declared him PO. Remember one thing, for cheque bounce cases there is specific time limit for issuing notice, and filling case...
