If I were to do this I would look at -psmatch2-, see -findit
psmatch2-.  However, your problem sounds extremely problematic to me.
So be very careful. These techniques don't do magic, they cannot
create information that was not present in the data. So I would first
think about whether you have the information you need to answer your
question before turning on the computer and looking for programs and
techniques. I am afraid that the answer will be no.

Hope this helps,
