While my wife and I were living in Las Vegas she left me while I was at work, When I came home the apartment was empty. I have since moved back to Iowa in 2000 and I have no idea where she is now. What do I have to do to get a divorce from here?

Are there children or property involved? If not, it won't be TOO hard. You will serve her by publication in the local paper of her last known address. Assuming all you are asking for is a termination of the marriage you can get that by default if she fails to appear or file an answer to your motion. Since you have been a resident of Iowa for the last 6 months you will file there.

There are no children or properties involved. Do I put in the vegas newspapers? What do I need to say and how long do I run it for and what under?

After doing due diligence to find her (contacting family etc.) you should get a lawyer. You will want someone to help you with this, because it has to be done properly or the judge may not accept it. Given that you are talking about probably ONE court appearance, it shouldn't be too expensive.
