Question

Country: United States of America
State: Louisiana

How can a lien holder get money owed to them from an insurance co. if the debtor was the insured and is no longer reachable? The auto title clearly lists the lien holder, the auto is totaled and I have titles and agreement to pay from debtor. I have reason to believe the debtor has fled the country.

Answer

Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit against them (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney.you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to their behavior.
