Lost Connection and then my Phantom 4 Advanced, Help

Summary of Issue:
Today I was flying one of my mapping jobs and my phantom 4 advanced (current firmware) and it lost connection with my remote. I tried to track it, but was unsuccessful and I lost it on the site somewhere. It’s about 110 acres in rough terrain. I’ve been to the place where I lost connection and couldn’t find it there. Needless to say it never returned home. Is there any way to find the GPS coordinates of my drone after I lost connection? I have checked my DJI Flight logs and it doesn’t show anything there.

Date Issue Began:
Drone Model:
Phantom 4 Advanced
Mobile Device Model and OS version:
Moto X4 Android.
DroneDeploy App Version:

Version 2.1.94 - 2.81.0

Was it on a typical mission? Keep searching for it waypoints down the line. I had to do this once and unfortunately I mistakenly had the DJIGo set to land instead of hover or RTH. I found it 4 waypoints down the flight plan.

wow thast point but didn’t get you
with regards

Hi @droneydronester78,

I hope you are doing well and we are really sorry to hear about your flight experience. I have sent you an email with instructions on how to collect the flight logs to see if we can find the last known location of your drone.

I found the drone a few days later with no damage, I had to retrace my steps and use my mavic air to go looking for it.

I followed the flight plan and saw where it landed.
