    The one possible way is by tracking the network the mobile phone with the IMEI number uses. No other option or application will help you. For this we have to first understand the basic concept behind it. If we put a sim card in our mobile we get network from the service provider. During the process the mobile interacts with the tower and the mobile details are recorded with the network provider including the IMEI number which helps to track the person. This is what is used by police and intelligence to catch thieves and terrorists.
    This is the main reason why Korean mobiles without IMEI number were banned a couple of years back as the identity of the user was hidden.Coming to your question if a mobile is lost you can definitely find out the mobile if the mobile is used by some other person. Because he has to put a sim card somehow and once he inserts a sim it will register with the network. Cyber crime officials are able to trace the mobile by this way, just by feeding the IMEI number and tracking the number which is using it at present. But if the one who had stolen it never uses a sim again and just uses it for listening to music it can never be tracked.
