The last name of someone, graduated in 200X from high school here locally.

The name I have for this person might be a middle name, but I am pretty sure it's a first name.

1) I can't let on that I am searching for this person's name.
2) I have already checked the libraries - they do not have the yearbooks for that recent a year.

Any other ideas? If I call the high school in question and's a bit weird, yes? And again, no one can know I am looking for this person's name.

Make sure you don't call from your own phone (home or work).

If you call the school, just say you're doing a reference check and need to verify attendance. They don't need to know why you're checking the references. You can always say it's a confidential/security issue, which is true from a certain point of view.
