If its a windows laptop, and you have signed in to a microsoft account on it, you can go online and sign in your microsoft account and click on devices. It will show you a map of where the laptop is.

Police report and insurance.

Even if you do track it, what are you going to do? Go to his house? Or the person he sold it to?

I saw that episode of Big Bang Theory. Don't bring your Klingon Bat'leth. He's only going to take that as well.

Keep the police involved. If you do have a way to track it, make sure they pick it up and not you. I think most of the time people just wipe the drives to prevent anything on the laptop from signing in and giving a location away. If it's been 4 days, I wouldn't expect to be able to find it remotely.

I have logged in to my Microsoft account but can't find the place for devices and the map. Where can I get it?

Find my device.

However....the map view it gives is very generic. Like a 3 mile radius. It's not going to show you what house it is in.
