    Welcome to Android Central! Tough break. You won't be able to locate the device after it gets wiped. But for what it's worth, the thief won't be able to use the phone after a factory reset, because Google Factory Reset Protection will require your Google username and password to be entered after the reset in order to proceed with the Setup Wizard.

    If I can add what may or may not be pertinent or correct any more, have you tried the Lock method and leave a message and contact number on the screen anyway?

    In the unlikely event you left your Location setting off, and someone wants to return it unwiped, the Lock method with a screen message doesn't need Location on.
