After speaking to Arthur, go to the Pawnshop Lodgings and find apartment 507. It's the one right across from your first haven. The lock is level five. If you can't pick it, take Murietta's apt key from behind the potted plant. Go inside.

There's an answering machine on a low table by the window. Listen to the message to learn that Michael Durbin went Downtown to see Sean Milton. Milton's apartment is apt 2A of the Skyeline Apartments. Before reporting back to Arthur, go into the kitchen of 507 and take the skill book Peepin' – A Voyeur Field Guide from one of the cupboards near the floor.

Report back to Arthur and tell him Muddy fled somewhere Downtown. He'll pay you and say he needs to hire a real bounty hunter to go after Muddy. (Experience Rewarded (Icon) 1 Exp, $150). This will start the quest Mudd Hunt which allows the fledgling to search for Muddy independently.
