How did he pay you? If by check, I wonder if the bank would have record (digital photocopy or some-such) of his info. If it was through paypal, you should almost certainly have access to some of his info. Either way (or otherwise), good luck to you. I know I'd hate to be the guy who paid for something like that and then either forgot about it or lost track of info to communicate, etc.

as was mentioned, your bank will have a copy of the check, front and back
you may even dig it out of an old bank statement, it'll have his name and address on it
if you really want to find the guy-you will
actually you already should have, no reason for a year to have gone by

Lord knows I'm a patient guy (you should see my lay-away department) but just how long are you going to wait for your buyer to show up? What if he's dead (happened to one of my customers)?
I'd pick a last chance date, and then re-sell it. Perhaps hold the first guy's money in 'escrow', but refund him the lesser of his original price or the re-sale price. He does not hold the high ground in this affair.

a "last chance date" sounds good
but if you never even tried to find the guy?
very possible the buyer is gone from this world, but a little effort to find him wouldn't hurt-a whole year?
and why would you refund somebody less than they paid you if you resold it? glad I'm not a customer

Same thing happened to a friend with a race bike. After a couple of years he sold the bike again. He never has heard from the first buyer.

How many reasons do you want? You going to provide storage secure from theft or damage (for free?)
What if it isn't worth as much in a year as it was when sold? Some things depreciate.
It may have been something of a white elephant and was difficult to find a buyer in the first place, now the aggravation of doing it all over again.
krikey, restocking fee if nothing else.
