    To Locate you device:

    If you cannot find your mobile phone, the first thing you need to do is to ensure whether the device is really lost or just misplaced. You can simply confirm that by calling the device. Or you can use Find My iPhone or Android Device Managerto track the device. If you make sure that the device is truly gone, you need to take action right away.
    Next time,please backup all the data in the computer in advance to avoid lose more.
