Tracing hardware via asset/serial number

Morning all,

I've recently been brought on to a project to ugrade a companies hardware. I have a list of assets to hand off to a build engineer for rebuilding, but am unable to find a number of laptops in their storage area.

I have some suspiscions, but I'd like the chance to rule out foul play before I throw any accusations about at any specific department; so, I was wondering if there's a way I could trace any of said laptops remotely using the info I have (currently asset tags, but could attain serial numbers quite easily), or if there's any other way I could do it by obtaining more asset info.

Any help would be vastly appreciated, thanks.
