bring box, get the serial number to local police so they pass the information unto pawn shops so it can be prevented to be purchased by them illegally
look on eBay and craigslist and ask for serial numbers of laptops that match yours and locations. EBay has rules about that if they refuse they can get in trouble for suspect of selling illegal goods.

god speed in retrieving it, but as it has happened to me before, dont hold your breath, get a police report done, contact insurance get a new one.
hope you put a encrypted password on your bios... otherwise, get to a computer and change ALL your passwords, like yesterday
