Download android device manager from the play store. This integrates phone location services for all phones attached to your google account.

This service allows for 2 features:
-Phone location services
-Lock & erase

You login to your google account here:
https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager‎

You will be able to see all of the devices on your Google account and locate /lock/wipe them if they are connected to the network.

Android lost is a great new service, Here is a a link to their new website after you have installed the app: http://new.androidlost.com/

I tried it out a little bit and was very impressed, especially since it is still in beta.
