Does your computer run Windows or Mac?
There is no device such as GPS integrated in to the laptop to detect the exact location of the laptop. However, this is not the end of the story. There are still mechanisms which could be employed to detect the location of your laptop. These are indirect solutions to reach to the location of the laptop.
One of such application is the famous Facebook. you can use facebook to detect the location of the laptop ( if that person is using your facebook account OR the account is still active on the computer).
To get a list of your Facebook account’s sessions, go to Settings and click on Security on the left sidebar. Now click on the bottom item called “Where You’re Logged In” . You should see an overview of the different devices and apps that last accessed your account. Facebook even tells you the city in which the session was established. If you hover over the city with your cursor, you can see the IP address. You can get an even more detailed lost of basically all past sessions
The same technique could be used through Gmail.
If the person with your laptop is curious enough, he or she might want to take a peek at your mails. As with Dropbox, Gmail keeps track of all the different IP addresses used to access your mails. Go to your Gmail inbox, scroll down and click on “Details” under “Last account activity” in the bottom right corner.
A new window should pop up, displaying the ten last recorded sessions together with the used IP addresses. write down the unknown IP address and track the location of that IP address through google or some website providing such services
