It's important to be patient and give Google some time to do everything right. After you finish locating it and it turns out it's in your home, start Android Device Manager and click on "Ring." This option will enable you to call your phone using Google.

After you're finished, do not forget to turn off the Android Device Manager. This nifty little trick also works with tablets and even iPhones, but you will have to use your iCloud account and app called "Find my iPhone."
