The battery is probably dead. When the battery is dead, there is no more electrical energy left to allow for tracking, so you cannot track it or know where it's located. You can get the device back if someone finds it, charges it, and figures out that you are the owner and returns it to you. There is no way to trace it with the IMEI..

Try to go to his work to make sure the next time he does it. If he's there make an excuse (probably plan one before you go) because there's no possible way of you turning it on if he turned it off.

Durga; The only way you can track your phone yourself is with Find My iPhone, unless you set up some other tracker on it. and if it says 'offline' you wont be able to get a location until it connects to the internet by 3G/LTE or WiFi and comes back online. If you put it into Lost Mode using Find My iPHone, you will get a notification when it does come online.
The IMEI will do you no good.

.. You can put the phone in "lost mode" or select "notify me when it goes online" (i don't remember the exact wording - read the screen and look at all of the options).
The options that show on the screen are all you can do other than waiting for it to come back online.
What are you going to do when it comes online and shows you were it is? Go bang-down the door of whoever stole it so they can stab you in the face?

I am trying to ensure the Find my phone works in case I lose it. This is my phone, I am not tacking anybody else...When I check Find My Phone on any other device (ipad, Mac, etc) the phone says it's offline. When I check the phone itself (tap Find my phone on the phone I am trying to track) it says: location unavailable... I have Internet connection, correct date and Find My Phone is on. How is it possible that I cannot track it?

Something isn't right.
Double check all the settings. Make sure Find My iPhone is on and that you are signed in with the same account that you are using when you log-in to track it.
Restart the iPhone - POWER OFF, then turn it back on - make sure you fully power it off. You will know if it was powered off if you see the Apple logo and the boot up process when you turn it back on. (I.e.; don't just put it to sleep).
If it's doing the same thing after all that, then something is borked. In that case walking it into the Apple Store and handing it to them to figure out might be the next step.

The iclound account is OK. Works. Power off did not work either. Well I guess something is wrong. Off to the Apple store.
