    Welcome to Android Central, and our most earnest hopes and wishes go out to you and your family. The phone can only show its location if it's on. If the phone is powered off, then I don't think even the police can access the emergency GPS location.

    There are a few things that I'm not sure the public has knowledge of about phone's and what they are capable of doing while powered off. But since the police are involved they will ultimately have the best chances of finding the phone's location.

    I hope things turn out okay for everyone involved!
