Sorry, but this is only a community forum staffed by volunteers and we can do nothing to track or recover missing property.  HP does not keep any record of Mac Addresses assigned to individual PCs.

What I recommend is the following:

1) Contact HP Customer Support, tell them about the stolen laptop, and get a case number

If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1
If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!

2) Contact the local law enforcement authorities about the theft -- provide them all the information they need and show them proof of ownership. You will most likely need to this to have then return the laptop to you if they find it

3) When the laptop is returned, contact Absolute Software to see about getting Lojack for Laptops for it. That enables you to report a stolen laptop and then locate it, once it is then connected to the Internet.

---------------------------------------------

I think THIS article more honestly portrays the situation: https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-track-stolen-laptops-with-a-mac-or-ip-address

 

Read the information in Step 2.

 

Also, I have tried various routines for locating my own laptop, and the ADDRESS information provided is the registered address of my ISP -- which is actually in a different STATE from where I live! So, that is of NO USE in locating my laptop.

 

Sorry, but the only REAL way to locate a laptop is if you have something embedded in it that allows you to find it -- and products like Lojack for Laptops provide that feature.
