As no-one has any idea of the adoptive name of your half-sister, regrettably no-one can help.

As she hasn’t signed up to the register, it may be that she either doesn’t know she was adopted, or has no wish to look for birth relatives

This sort of quest needs to be handled only by trained professionals.
