Head to the location of where the raider hunters are and speak to them. Several options in conversation include asking for their help dealing with the former raider, convincing them to go cause trouble with the Settlers (which loses a little reputation with the settlers in the process), or convince them to give up the search and let the residents handle it. Once the hunters are convinced to give up the search, find the former raider, and confront them. The hunters might also end up being killed by enemies in the areas they are traveling through, which still marks the optional objective as completed.
Alternatively, the player character can bypass the optional objective to interact with the raider hunters, by encountering the former raider first. Both raider hunters and the former raider will be actively moving on the world map in real-time once the quest begins, usually on pre-established roads.
The former raider can be convinced to either go join the Settlers, rejoin the Raiders, flee Appalachia entirely, or simply killed. However, the former Raider might be engaged by enemies and killed, thus making things easier to report the raider's fate to Rocksy. Once that is done, report back to Rocksy to complete the quest. Telling her the raider will rejoin the group or is dead earns some extra reputation.
