LinkedIn: How do I connect with a specific person who does not come up on my list of potential connections

I know specifically of someone who is on linked in, but never comes up as a recommended connection, so I never see that person's picture on my screen with a "Connect" button.

How do I connect with them?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you know the name of the person you can search for him/her, when the person shows up in the results, you click on this person and see if you can click on the button "connect", sometimes this isn't possible or you get extra questions you can't really bypass ... On some occasions you can only get in contact with the person via "inmail", but this is a payable feature.
