Pull the nav light fixture and check to see if the wire has power at that point.

If there is power at the switch, but no power at the nav light fixture, it seems you are down to a few choices:
1. Find the wire run, no matter what it takes.
2. Run new wires.
3. Install new nav. light fixture, maybe one with integral battery?

...... just a thought, 'though, is there a fuse or breaker past the switch?
