I have lost my phone and I used the Samsung account to locate it, but it didn't work. Also, I told the police using the IMEI number of the phone. In the same day I looked into Android Device Manager, but it showed nothing. Even it being stolen on 4/5 and the phone turned on on 8/5 because my friend saw my Viber account once. Can I at least locate the last time my phone was turned on to find my phone?

You could try looking into the Google Location History. You can access that information by logging into the Google Dashboard with the google account you had on that phone. However, I'm not sure if you can activate location history remotely if you didn't already have it enabled.

    Location history is enabled in the Google settings of the device. In other words, it cannot be enabled remotely. However, typically is it on by default.
