Not really a technical question, but there are products called "Cell Phone Detectors" out there that work well if the phone is turned on.  They run about 200 (USD) and up.  Just do an internet search and you will get more than enough info.

If its turned on then call its number to locate it from its ringing / vibration sound.
If its turned off then a metal detector may help.
Otherwise you will need to ask him where he hid it or just keep looking.
