Are there any built in tools in my CyanogenMod7 Android phone that would help me locate it? Or anything else?

My android phone (BACKside ROM / CyanogenMod7) was lost/possibly stolen in a foreign country. Any clever ways to find it/get it back?

So my phone downloaded the Get Stolen/Grow Legs and Walk Away apps this past weekend. I've turned over rooms and rooms looking for the thing and it's nowhere to be seen.
It's a Virgin Mobile Optimus V with a custom Android ROM installed -- The BACKside CyanogenMod7 port (http://bit.ly/vTPFcD).
Are there any built in tools in CyanogenMod7 or this port that would help me get this phone back?
Here's another weird thing. I installed the new facebook messaging application and my friends are telling me that my name is still showing up with a phone icon. However, I'm pretty sure the phone is in airplane mode. Does the icon just stay on until you sign off on the phone or does that mean it's actively connected? The phone is CDMA and doesn't work here, but I've been using it on wifi.
There is a lock screen on the phone, but it's a simple swipe password, so I'm sure if somebody took it, they'll figure it out eventually. There's nothing sensitive on the phone and I've already changed passwords to the linked accounts.
I've also put up flyers, posted messages on facebook, and asked people about it.
Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
