Need Help Taking Over Ownership of a Page/Account

I was trying to follow the instructions for how to reclaim ownership of a page/account, but I don't think the instructions are updated because they don't match what's on my screen in order for me to follow the steps. I don't know who the current owner is of this page/account for the organization I'm working for (I'm their new marketing & communications coordinator). I would like to request help with contacting the owner and requesting transfer of ownership as soon as possible please. Here's my info.:


The Primavera Foundation

151 40th St., Tucson, AZ 85713 (that's one of many of our addresses)



Thank you for your assistance,

Yes, I have. The company doesn't know who created (or if verified) their
business page. So, I tried to follow the "Step 2 Follow Google's
Instructions" and those were the ones that I mentioned in my forum post
that don't align with what actually appears on the screen when the link is
clicked. When the link is clicked, it's an "add your business" page when
I'm already signed into Google and the instructions say to "search" for the
business. So, if you have any updated correct instructions that could help,
I could try it at least. Please let me know.

Thank you,
