Need to take over company Analytics account that was created by ex-employee

Nobody remembers who set up the account, but a couple years back, someone did and they put in a tracking ID, which I have, but nobody remembers who created it, or what account it's under.  I'm a Google Apps customer, but there is no support for Analytics for Google Apps, so I was told to post here in hopes of recovering the account.

 

I don't know the email address it was associated with, nor the password if we were to find it, but I can prove domain ownership.

I'd rather not lose all the historical data that's built up.  I have a proper Analytics account I've assigned access to, and we're using it for other things, but someone recently brought up a particular property we wanted to have been tracking as we have a marketing project coming up.
