Knowing the serial number will not help you get the IP address.

Has there been any access to any of your online accounts from your missing laptop?

If your laptop was set up for email, you could try sending an email to yourself at an account being used on the laptop.

That may help you find the IP address, but you could also use a new email address to send the message, and act like someone else that wants to BUY your laptop for a high price. The thief may talk to you and see if he can sell you the stolen laptop. Then contact the police and let them make the deal so they can catch the person. Don't try to do it yourself!
