"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If your phone is powered off, there isn't a way to locate it.  You will need to wait until it is turned on and connected to the internet.

Follow this article from Apple.

What if your iOS device is off or offline?

If your missing device is off or offline, you can still put it in Lost Mode, lock it, or remotely erase it. The next time your device is online, these actions will take effect. If you remove the device from your account while it's offline, any pending actions for the device will be cancelled.

And here is how you can track it.

Hopefully this will help you get your phone back.

Above all, remember, your safety doesn't have a price tag.  If you think there could be an unpleasant confrontation, get the local authorities involved.  I heard in the news lately where somebody was shot over something minor like this.
