What do you already know, first, last and full middle name? Past residences? Date of death? Any known relatives? Without offering any personal information, you can mention what you have, even information you don't believe is helpful.

If you already know the area, you can directly go to the department which made the arrest and check their jail/inmate page. There are 83 counties in Michigan, if you don't know the area, you can do a people search to narrow the area. You have to keep in mind that searching for address finds only that, which tell you where the person lived, not where they were arrested.
