1.If you have another iDevice, download the Find My iPhone app from the App Store, and use it to track your lost device on the go. Alternatively, you can use the web version of iCloud to track the device. From my little experience using both methods to locate my device, the web version provides more details than the mobile version. Although the steps below are for the web version.. So my belief is that the interface of the mobile app should be similar.
2.Once you log in to iCloud, click on the All Devices button at the top of the screen, and choose the lost phone from the list.

3.If the phone is currently traceable, its location will be updated on the map.
The greendot on screen indicates that the phone is currently online. If you click on the dot, you should also be able to find out when and how this location was updated.
If the device is offline, the dot will turn gray, and the map will display its last known location.
4.When the device is found, you only have options to play sound on the device remotely, put it in Lost mode, or erase the device completely.
NOTE : The Play Sound option is only helpful when you have misplaced the device somewhere in your house and want to find it.
The Lost Mode allows you to lock the device remotely using a pass code. You will be able to create a new passcode  even if you have not done so before.
The Erase iPhone option completely wipes out the data on the lost phone. Choose this option only as a last resort.

5.By default, the map should be displayed in Standardmode. You can switch to Satellite view to get a better idea of the location of the phone or use Hybridmode which combines the standard and satellite modes together.
