Have you taken the Ancestry DNA test yet?  Ancestry now has more than 2,000,000 testers in its database.  Given that you know your father's surname is Rice, there is a reasonable chance that you would find a close family match to someone with the Rice surname in their tree.  This could lead you to your father's extended family.
