We were sent a message that our lost iPod Touch was found.  The problem - we did not read the email in time!  We have a general map, but at the bottom of the map it says, "Your iPod’s last reported location will be available for 24 hours."    Darn!     We missed it.

 

Is there any way to recover this last reported location? 

 

Your help would be appreciated very much!

Unfortunately, as the iPod touch does not have GPS you'll never get an accurate location. GPS is accurate to within a few meters. The Wifi positioning the iPod uses is only accurate to a few hundred meters.

 

You also cannot get the last reported location after the 24 hours.

    Well...   that is exactly what I needed to know.  "A few hundred meters" is what I needed to know as well.  That is extremely helpful.  Thank you so much, Julian.
