If the Word version doesn’t show up, we have Acrobat Pro at work and can probably turn the PDF version back into an editable Word Doc for you to use. Just send over what you have if you want to do this and I’ll see if we can convert it. Also, which version of Word are you using – 2010, 2013, 2016 or Office 365? It may make a difference in how Acrobat does its magic.
Now that I think about it, the PDF may have the name of whoever created the file embedded in the meta data of the file (depends on how their computer was set up when they saved it as a PDF). If you look at Properties of the PDF (File/Properties/Description), it may lead you to the prime suspect on the project.
Let me know if you need help.
