"locate" as in the command locate? That wouldn't know anything about
what files are really on your filesystem until an updatedb run has
been completed... usually run from cron once/day or once/week... Not
the best tool;-).
Where would  it be delivered normally? Have you made sure it isn't
dropped there? or just ... "misplaced"...?
