I too had my USPS query returned today. It was marked 'forward time expired.' I mailed it 7 Feb 2018. Checkin her reports, I see no positive replies for he past year. I wonder if they are gone with the Santa Ana Winds? ????

Thanks Cisroe_P2. I'm going to mark them as email only until a new address can be found.

Though the agency says it accepts snail-mail queries, mine was returned today from the Wilshire address and marked by the postal worker as "Vacant." (Today is 1/16/18.) I have sent an email and will report back when I get a reply.

Looking at the comments below, it doesn't seem like she responds to the nudges even though her agency site says you can send a reminder after 8 weeks.
