Well stopping the service to the phone is going to prevent it from being found.

The usual way to find it is by going to https://www.icloud.com/#find and as long as the phone has service and you had enabled FindMyiPhone on your iPhone it will find it.

Your provider can't track a phone without a warrant so having put your own location software like FindMyIphone on your phone would be your only option.

I'm sorry I don't have better news.
