Tracking down a vandalizer who's faking his IP

Someone is vandalizing my friend's website.
When I checked the IP address, it seems like it's from another distant country and not much else information is provided.

Clearly, from what the vadalizer wrote, it appears he is from a local area and possibly someone he knows quite well.

I have sent an email to the owner of that segment of IP address but haven't heard anything for the past 2 months other than an automated reply. Do most admins in other countries ignore requests to reveal source IP's when they feel it's just a vandalism and not a significant incidence?

Does anyone here have any experience tracking down a faker such as this
and could you provide any tips on how one can effectively talk to
and coordinate with the ISP's at the other end?
