    Does your friend have the Find My iPhone app installed on his iPad and is it turned on? If the answer to both questions is yes, he can go to his iCloud account and log into find my iPhone and if the stolen iPad is turned on and connected to the internet the app will display it's last known position on a map. This info will be of use when the police are contacted. Find my iPhone also offers the ability to remotely erase the iPad and to display a message on the home screen.

    Here's the Apple page for find my iPhone. http://www.apple.com/ca/icloud/find-my-iphone.html

    BTW, I've moved your post to the iPad Help Forum, where it will receive more attention.

    Just to let you know if your friend does not have find my iPhone than the only thing your friend can do is contact the police and report it stolen.
