Stolen site and tracker

A while back the code for my website was stolen I think by someone in Russia. They scraped my site and replaced all the content with new text in Russian. I sill get a lot of hits to the tracker, all from Russian visitors, because they left this in-place. I did once find the site on line but it has since disappeared and been re-hosted and i've lost track of it. How do I find out the IP address of the server that is sending data to the tracker so I can contact the host and get it shut down?

So now you are looking to trace them. You can use IntoDNS and Whoishostingthis to get their IP and server information.

Thank you, I am aware of those services but the problem is I do not know the URL of the website the tracker is being used on. I was hoping there might be a way with Google Analytics to find the IP address of the server that is sending data to the tracker. How can I find this information? I'm sure Google must know it.

I am not sure, but Google won't provide this kind of user information using google analytics. You can use Google Tag Manager to get user IP. I think the article can help you a little bit, not sure.
