If Find My Friends Location isn’t working for a friend, it could be because of a number of things, like the fact that your friend’s device has the wrong date. The device your friend is using is either off or not connected to cellular or Wi-Fi. In Find My Friends, your friend turned on “Hide My Location.”
Check Apple’s System Status to check Find My status

Find My Location
You will be notified if Find My is unavailable. A green dot indicates that it is operational. If it’s having problems, it’s because of Apple. This is unusual, but it does happen. You have no choice but to wait for Apple to fix the problem.
Update your device
Make sure your device is running the most recent version of its operating system. A widespread bug in Location Services may be affecting some users. It’s possible that an update has already been released. This ensures that your device is current:
Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone or iPad.
Apple menu > System Preferences > Software Update on the Mac.
Why does my lost iPhone say no location found?
Your device may be offline for one of the following reasons: “Offline,” “No location available,” or “Location Services Off.” It’s turned off, the battery has died, or it’s been more than 24 hours since Apple received the last location (if Send Last Location is turned on).
Whats the difference between no location found and no location available?
You can still see where your friends are, but when they try to find you, they get a Location Not Available message. If the device cannot be found, the message “No location found” appears next to its name.
Can you see someone’s location if their phone is off?
However, tracking a switched off phone is more difficult because it stops communicating with nearby mobile towers when it is turned off. Only by calling the service provider or using Google services can it be traced back to its last known location when it was turned on.
What do you do when it says location not available?
The “Location Not Available” error can occur when the Messages or Find My apps become corrupted. Force quitting and relaunching the app in question is the quickest way to fix this. If that fails, you’ll need to restart your iPhone.
