Actually, there still are something you can do to try to find your lost iPhone.

Activation Lock, available on devices running iOS 7 or later, is tied to Find My iPhone. When Find My iPhone is turned on, Activation Lock is on. When setting up a new device, Find My iPhone is automatically enabled, but you can check to make sure it's turned on by following the below steps: Open the Settings app, tap iCloud, and set the Find My iPhone slider to On. You'll need to enable this setting on each device you want to track.
Then you can track and find your lost iPhone with the steps below:
1. Use the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or you can sign in to on a Mac or PC.
2. Tap the "My Devices" button at the top-left corner of the window on an iPad or iPhone. Select your lost iPhone from the list of devices (If you have other devices associated with your Apple ID, such as an iPad, it will be listed here as well). Or click the Devices menu at the top of the page if you are using the iCloud website.

Note: If your iPhone cannot be located because it is turned off or out of network, check the "Notify me when found" box. As soon as the iPhone is turned back on and connected to a cellular or wireless network, you will receive a notification at your Apple ID email address.
3. If your iPhone is online and "Find My iPhone" can locate it, the map will center on your iPhone's last-reported location. You can use this map to determine where you may have left it.

4. If your iPhone is lost nearby, you can click or tap the "Play Sound" button to make the iPhone play a notification sound. This will be played at maximum volume, which can hopefully help you track it down. Tap "OK" on your iPhone to stop the sound from playing.
5. You can also choose "Lock Mode" to lock the iPhone's screen with either your preset passcode or a new one if you don't have one set. You can also add a contact number and message that will be displayed on the screen if a nice person finds
6. If the iPhone is gone and you don't think you'll be able to recover it, you can choose "Erase iPhone" to wipe your iPhone of all your data. This is a last-resort option, and should only be chosen if you are worried sensitive or personal information will be revealed. If your iPhone is passcode-locked, your information is not retrievable.

Tracking a stolen Apple iPhone / iPad

Locate your lost or stolen iPhone or iPad on a map.<br /><br />If you lose your iPhone or iPad, MobileMe can help you find it with Find My iPhone. Just enable Find My iPhone in the MobileMe settings on your iPhone or iPad.* Then sign in to from any computer or using the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to display its approximate location on a full-screen map<br /><br />Display a message or play a sound to help you find it.<br /><br />Say you've just used the Find My iPhone feature, and it turns out you left your iPhone or iPad at the doctor's office. Not to worry. You can write a message that will be displayed on your iPhone or iPad. Something like, "Oops, left my iPhone behind. Please call me at 408-999-9999." Your message appears on the screen, even if it's locked. And if the map shows you that your iPhone or iPad is nearby - say, at home under a pile of laundry - yet you still can't find it, you can tell MobileMe to play a sound that overrides the ringer volume or silent setting on your device.<br /><br />Set a passcode lock remotely.<br /><br />Once you realize you haven't simply misplaced your iPhone or iPad at home, you may want to protect its contents until it's safely back in your hands. Sign in to your MobileMe account and remotely set a four-digit passcode lock to prevent people from using your iPhone or iPad, accessing your personal information, or tampering with your settings.<br /><br />Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.<br /><br />Addresses, phone numbers, email, photos. Your iPhone or iPad contains important and personal information - information you probably don't want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPhone or iPad and displaying a message on it hasn't resulted in its safe return, you can initiate a remote wipe to restore it to the factory settings.* If you eventually find your iPhone or iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on your device. Or connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup.<br /><br />Find My iPhone app.<br /><br />Because the unexpected happens in the most unexpected places, the Find My iPhone app can help you locate your missing iPhone or iPad even when you don't have access to a computer. It's free on the App Store and available to anyone. So if you misplace your device, download the Find My iPhone app on a friend's iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and sign in to your MobileMe account to access all the Find My iPhone features on the spot.<br /><br /><a href=""></a>

Need to know how to search for my stolen phone

LEO Privacy is a good choice. If a person pick up your phone it take a picture I'm that person is holding your phone so if you lose your phone it takes a picture of your phone and you try to find your phone over the other and then you got a picture of the thief or the person that took your phone from your personal possession or home I like it

My son phone was stolen but i dont know is find my iphone on

if the iPhone is on iCloud the person may sooner or later switch it on so it might be a good idea to keep checking online, findmyphone also speak to long as it's iCloud locked whoever has it can't wipe the phone and restore it to working use.i think you might also try the network that it's on and ask if they can pinpoint its last mast connection to get an idea roughly where it is.only useful if you have an idea of who might have it.

Can any one track iphone through imei no

No, thankfully. The only way you can be tracked using your iphone is if you allow apps to track your location or if your cell carrier gets a warrant from the police for your location
