Hi :-)
You will need to try an account recovery. No guarantee they will be able to grant Admin access though (in which case you may have to retain read access to historical data and create a new property and swap out the code on the website and start tracking in a new property.

For account recovery you will need to create and Adwords account. It is free to do so, but necessary to access the support options. There is a comprehensive post by Niall in the following thread on how to go about doing this
