    Welcome to iMore! While I don't condone lying to your parents I will tell you that your iPhone cannot report its location while it's turned off.
    Shame on you for asking!

    In addition to the answer given above, I will share a little tidbit with you. My kids, at some point, tried doing exactly what you described, but as soon as they got home, I took their phones, put it in DFU mode, wiped it completely, and then kept it for a while (weeks). They were ticked, but I didn't give a crap because I purchased the phones, I paid the monthly bill, and I personally told them the rules as well as the consequences upon giving them their phones. They never did that again. They're grown now and are paying their own bills.
