Finding a will may not be as simple as it first appears. A person may have made more than one will or made recent changes, so you need to make sure you have the latest version. The most sensible place to start is the last place of residence of the deceased person. Wills can be located in all manner of hiding places.  Ask family members and close friends to see if they have been made aware of where it might be. Often, a person will lodge the will at a Solicitors office or bank for safekeeping. If those steps do not locate the will specialist help will be required.
