Default Locating a rooted phone?

Is there a way to use device manager to find my rooted phone? Device manager says it is unable to find the location and I'm guessing that's because it's rooted. I'm hoping the phone didn't turn off.....
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4
Android version: 4.4

I am rooted and have used device manager to locate my phone. My guess is that could mean any number of things starting with the phone is not powered on, it does not have any cell or wifi signal to work off of, or the phone could be disconnected from your account.... I font think I have ever got an unable to locate, I at least get a last known location and the time it was there.

Well if you find it you should install lookout. It will update the location right before it loses battery.
