Stolen iP6 in Mexico with Mexican Sim

Phone fell out of holster while in taxi to airport. Didn't notice until I boarded airplane. Called hotel where we stayed in Loreto to see if they could find driver of taxi. They called owner, but his brother-in-law was our driver. Both denied finding phone, but the other drivers said he did. Called the number. A man answered, I asked, in English, if he spoke English. Bueno, Bueno was all he would say. I don't speak Spanish. So,,,,,I called my friend at the hotel, he called the number and was told a woman just bought the phone in and wanted it inlocked. I have already set Find My IPhone up to erase when connected to Internet. So far, no connection. I guess that 4 digit lock works, at least for now. Lots of info on the phone I don't need public. Have I covered all my bases? I've written off getting the phone back, even though I have offered a reward.
Maybe this will help someone else as far as locking phone.
