Contact a local State Farm Agent and explain you are searching for a life insurance policy on your father. The agent will contact the company with your inquiry and let you know if they can help you or not. If you are the owner of the policy or the beneficiary, they will gladly communicate with you, otherwise, they won't be able to share any info with you. In the meantime, look through your father's financial records to determine if there have been premiums paid. State Farm has policies they are actually paid up after several years and even if no premium payments have been made in the last several years, there may still be a policy out there.
