It depends on what you have enabled on your smartphone.
If it was linked with your google ID then login your google on another device and you can remotely access your device, even you can lock your device.
Another method, if you have installed some mobile tracking software on your device then also you can easily trace the location of your device.
You should make an FIR for your lost phone as one may misuse it to do some illegal purpose. Police will trace your device and by your EMEI number police will detect the person if he is using SIM card in the phone.
