This is a simple question for a word that I can use to describe something being unambiguously indicatable by (sort of) its address or location.

For example, let's assume we are detectives and we finally obtained a detailed address of a culprit that we want to find. Then we can say like,

Finally, the culprit is totally [???]able.

The [???]able here is the word that I'm searching for now. I considered the words locatable, localizable, and addressable, but I'm not sure whether they are commonly used.

  • Knowing somebody's address doesn't mean that they are going to be there. I don't think the culprit is totally anything in this situation. All that you know is where to look next.

You could use “traceable,” but “able to be located” may still be clearer; I don’t think the three words you offered are commonly used here at all.
