I think you can track it down, but could not find out how without the applications that explores the devices features. So the feature is present on hardware, that is why I think you can do something.

Your ISP do have your MAC address if you connected directly from your Mac authenticating with their gateways. If you used a cable plugged on ethernet and ISP's modem, having the MAC address will not help that much, as what you could scan would be signal from your AirPort Extreme card.

As I understand they can provide you all information you need now.

Hi everyone, I have a question.
I recently lost my macbook pro (not even 24hours ago).
I'm unsure where it is, but my best guess is that it is left on the bus (bus company says no) or on the bench of the bus stop (no way to check other than making a police report).
I previously turned on the find my mac option in OS X Lion. So now, using my iphone and Ipad, I am able to find my iphone and ipad, but my macbook doesn't seem connected to the internet, hence i can't detect its location.
I have already put on a remote lock with password and a message of my contact details and address.
Question 1 - What are the chances of me finding my mac, given that last i used it, i switched off the wifi and it is password locked(and remote locked) to begin with...?
Question 2 - What can i further do to improve my chances? Will submitting my laptop ID given by APPLE to the police make any difference at all?
