But you can use all the normal ways of finding lost members, such as those detailed here: http://www.ldsclerks.com/index.php?title=Locating_Members
I agree that finding their new address, especially if you did not move their records out, would be very difficult. If you're like me (also a student clerk), another problem is that the turnover is so high that just finding the address where they lived when they were in the ward is a pain. In the past when I've had to get a hold of former members (usually outstanding checks), I've found it useful to load an old backup file. The nice thing about students is most have cell phones (phone number doesn't change), and emails are pretty reliable. See this post.
