unfortunately, if you do not have spherical symmetry, the geometry along
a single axis is insufficient information to locate an event horizon. If
you knew anything else about the solution (for instance, its mass and
angular-momentum parameters, and that it was exactly vacuum), you could
reconstruct enough of the rest to be able to locate the horizon.
