Help locating account for old snippet

Hi, my company was revisiting our analytics after a break and found that we don't have access to the account. We're pretty sure a former employee had this associated with their account, but we're not sure which one. We have the snippet on our site and the UA-########-1 number.


Is there any way to locate the Google account associated with this snippet from that information? If we just knew the email address for the account we could reach out to the former employee/account owner.


Thank you.

Hi Evan :-)
sorry to hear you are having account access issues.
Google does not give out email information for privacy and security reasons.


You could try to recover the account, there is a comprehensive post by Niall in the following thread on how to go about doing this (its the one marked as best answer)
