    In order for a device to be tracked, it must have the Find My iPhone service turned on in Settings>icloud.  The Find My iPhone app has nothing to do with this, it is only an app that you use to find other lost devices.


    If you have not turned on the service, then you can't locate the device.  If you did, then log into with a browser (or use Find My iPhone app with another device) and go to the Find My iPhone page.  There you can track registered devices.
