The order was signed Friday, and authorities visited an upscale neighborhood in the north coastal town of Dorado where the singer lives to try to serve the order, police spokesman Axel Valencia told The Associated Press.
“Up until now, police haven’t been able to find him,” Valencia said.
Martin’s publicist did not immediately return a message asking for comment.
It was not immediately known who requested the restraining order. Valencia said he could not provide further details because the order was filed under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.
He said that the order prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who filed it and that a judge will later determine at a hearing whether the order should remain in place or be lifted. He added that usually orders are implemented for at least a month.
Valencia noted that the person who filed for the restraining order did not contact police, which would have involved prosecutors determining if there was enough evidence to file charges. Rather the request went straight to the court.

Man, 30, Savagely Beats 2 Women At Auburn Store, Crashes During Getaway: Police
A 30-year-old North Dighton became a one-man wrecking crew on the morning of July 30 when he went berserk at an Auburn gas station when he attacked two women for no reason, crashed his car as he tried to make his getaway, and then got into another fight.
Kyle Fitta got angry on the morning of July 30 when a gas station on Route 12 wouldn't take his credit card to pay for his purchases, the Auburn Police Department. Rather than accept that, Fitta began to punch the 19-year-old female cashier in the face, officials said. The girl's mom, who owns the store, rushed over to help, but Fitta viciously attacked her.
He punched and kicked the women and threw them against the floor and into store displays, the police department said. A customer who saw the attack from outside ran inside and scared off Fitta, who grabbed the mother's keys and cellphone as he rushed out of the door, authorities added.
The daughter received a broken nose in the beating, a black eye, and a severe cut above her left eye that doctors had to stitch closed. Her mom also had a black eye, several cuts and bruises, and a back injury from the attack, Auburn police said. Authorities expect the women to recover from the attack.
Fitta sped off in his car down the Mass Turnpike before he caused a car crash and violently attacked another driver, police said. Massachusetts State Police had to fight to get him to put on the handcuffs and get him into a patrol car.
Officials charged Fitta with unarmed robbery, assault and battery causing serious injury, three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, and two counts of malicious destruction of property, Auburn police said.
