You can sometimes use a portable AM radio tuned to an empty spot to
trace wires. The wire will emit a buzzing noise (whatever is at the
end has to be on - in this case the ceiling light).
I've also use a signal injector and radio - in this case the wire was
disconnected. Since you probably don't do electronics as a hobby you
probably don't have a signal injector handy but perhaps a friend does.
