    I'm sorry to read about the theft and hope that you are successful in getting the PC returned to you and the thief apprehended.

    The local law enforcement agency with an active case can contact Microsoft and request this information officially. Law enforcement has a special number to call (I do not know this number) and they will need to take care of the legal paperwork to make the request. They will need to know your subscription information, PC name, and other information related to the account and that PC. There is no guarantee that the information provided by OneCare, assuming that the PC is connecting to the Internet and is still running OneCare, will help locate the PC as it does not typically transmit anything that would identify the location ir user data.
