If no such names or addresses are known to the petitioner, but the petitioner has reason to believe such persons exist, then the petition shall state that fact and that the petitioner has made diligent inquiry to learn those names and addresses;

(10) if the petitioner suggests the appointment of co-ancillary conservators, a statement of the reasons why such appointment is sought and whether the petitioner suggests that the co-ancillary conservators, if appointed, should be able to act independently or whether they should be required to act only in concert or only in concert with regard to specified matters; and
