Legal Question in Family Law in Louisiana

Forgotten Spouse

What are the procedures for obtaining a divorce from a spouse you haven't had any contact with in three or more years. There hasn't been any cohabitation in more that nine years. Also, there may be problems locating the missing spouse. I would like the least expensive, quickest way possible. Thanks for all replies.
