Each device has to be on and listed on your Apple ID.

If you never went through the setup process you cannot find the device. Go to http://www.icloud.com and sign in with your Apple ID and password to see if you did register it. However if it is off you cannot locate it. But you can set an alert to email you when the device is found, turned on.

Good Luck

After the phone is registered. And you did register it? You click on Find My Iphone, then scroll to the device in question. It will say the phone is not located or not on at present. It then asks if you would like to be alerted when it is? You click yes.

It then emails you the location once it is turned on.

Good Luck
