Does the verb 'to locate' make sense in this context:



a) "I can't locate that book on the shelf."


b) "I can't locate their e-mail in my mail box."

Yes, but it's not very common to use 'locate' to mean 'find'. That usage tends to happen when it's urgent to find someone.

The child was lost, and the police have been trying to locate her all day.
