This is indeed a private ip address and gets not routed through the internet by any router.
Therefore, if there is such an ip address in your network and you have to find out, what device has this ip address, first think about a few things:
1. what is the ip range of your network? (ipconfig /all will give the answer)
2. are you using a wireless network? Maybe someone got in to your wireless network. (If so, we have to talk later about that.)
3. Try a ping -a (Maybe the device answers and give back the ip address and it's name.)

If you can ping the address you can use "arp" to get its MAC. You can then find the manufacturer of the device from the MAC. This might help you track it down.

There are 2 types of IP address.
1)Private IP address
2)Public IP address
Private IP address can't be guessed correctly because it is a Local IP. This is used only for LAN purpose. The Private IP address starts with to, to and to
The Remaining all IP address are Public IP address.
But Public IP address can be identified easily through this site which gives the Service Provider, IP Location and Country etc..
