    Hello. There's a few aspects to your post. If is definitely stolen and been reset, then your information will be wiped. This is a second best scenario for you, right, you would rather have it back intact but at least your information would be safe. Phone thieves are not interested in your data.
    What about blocking your imei through your carrier?

    Your device won't be located if Location is off. With the Android Device Manager service you can however set it to either Lock the phone when it's turned back on, and also leave a 'return me' message on the screen and a contact number they can dial. This will work without Location on, and of course whoever found it will want to return it, most do.
    Then you can also choose to Wipe / reset your phone when turned back on, if stolen. A week has gone by though and I'm not sure if this still works after being reset.

    Android Device Manager would have been set by default when the Note 2 was new.
    If you tried AVG and Samsung Find, ADM may have been unchecked in Security - Device Administrators.

    Try it anyway with your Google account on a pc or other device:
