Need help in locating a relative

I'm looking for

* Åke Gustaf Håkan Elander, born 10/11 July 1904 in Örebro, Sweden and found in border passings between Canada and the US in the 1920's and in the 1940 census. He seems to have emigrated to the US in the early 1930's from Sweden but there are records of him in the household books as "spending time abroad" before that. In the 1940 census I find him as "Ike Elander" with married wife "Mollie Elander" born in the "Irish Free State" around 1905. They have a daugther called "Eileen" born abt 1939 then. I then find records of him going by "Joseph or Jos", being a servant working around New Rochelle. No records after 1950's though. Record of Eileen in 1958 being a "student nurse" in the phone book. There are no records of Åke dying in Sweden from the death books.

Any ideas on where to look next? The problem seems to be with his name, as it is changing between Oke, Ike and Jos(eph).

Any help appreciated. Thanks! :)
