Name state and zip is all the data that the site requires...if any of these fields are missing just dont include that part of the url

Example (if there is no first name remove the firstname part):
http://www.whitepages.com/10001/search/FindPerson?name=%lastname%&city_zip=%cityorzip%&state_id=%state%
