How to find the details of the previously running process with PID

OS: Unix or Linux

I (only) know the pid of the process which was running earlier (say 5 hrs back) but it is not running now.

Is there a way I could find the details of that process? (atleast the name of the process). Please let me know.

"IF" it wrote anything to the syslog or other log SOMETIMES its inside brackets [xxxxxx].

I dont know of any other way...
