I left my phone on a plane a week ago and it hasn’t been handed in to lost property - is it lost or stolen?

I’ve had the sim cancelled.

It’s android and I’ve done the usual locate and lock and now I’ve just sent the erase request to clear all my data. It hasn’t been turned on since I lost it (last location check says last seen 7 days ago). I had toyed with getting the IMEI blocked and if I do that it won’t receive the erase request over the air, but am I right in assuming that wifi will still work on a blocked phone and it will receive the erase request this way? I just don’t want to jump the gun and block the phone and not erase my data.

Thanks, Kristian
