if i can get any help that would be great

Uhm, they would have to have some sort of software already installed on their phone that automatically lets you know where they are... you can't just bust into someone's phone because it has GPS capabilites. If you're really worried, and you are family, you can go to the carrier and they can tell you the last location of the tower that the phone registered at through its IMEI number but you're really going to need to prove to them who you are etc. before they're going to do this for you.

Get the police involved, you can't request jack shit from the phone network (unless you have paid for a tracking service), but file a missing persons report and tell the police you know they have there phone on them and they will be able to use formal channels to request that information. Once you get the person back, you might want to lojack there phone.
