For the future, your friend may be interested in Tile, which can be used to locate phone, keys, etc.

More of us joined the hunt

I spent an hour with Apple trying to login in. Finally you logged in but apparently unless you have it turned on your phone and logged into the iCloud it won't show any devices and it doesn't. So now we're just looking in every nook and cranny

Self hypnosis drjerryspeaks.wordpress.com/2008/05/11/a-unique-technique-to-locate-a-lost-item/
I've used a similar technique . No pendulum just sit relaxed with palms up. thumb and forefinger will close for a positive response. Is my phone in the garbage? Is my phone in the house? Is my phone in the car? Is my phone at a friends house?
Self hypnosis came in handy when when I broke my shoulder in Tiger Leaping Gorge and was a painful climb and next day walkout from help.

Make sure you look in silly places like in the fridge.

If the phone goes to voicemail it may be on do not disturb mode. A second call from the same number within 3 minutes will ring the phone if you have the setting on. Worth a try if you haven't done so already.

If the phone is simply switched off you are basically stuck retracing steps and hoping for the best. I think you've tried find my iphone and you can't even see the last known location?

RFID tags...

Anyone tagging their little kids with RFID tags?
I would imagine would be very useful when in malls with little kids.
