What happens if we cannot locate the witnesses to the will?

If none of the subscribing witnesses can be produced to prove the execution of the will, it may be established by proving the handwriting of a testator and of the subscribing witnesses to the will, or of some of them.

If an affidavit is signed at or after the time the will is made, there is no need to locate a subscribing witness.
