    Find My iPhone is part of the iCloud service therefor it does requires an Apple ID (iCloud account).
    If the the Apple ID was deleted Find My iPhone will no longer work until you 'connect' it to another Apple ID.

    the find my iphone tracking settings are specific feature of an iCloud account. Without an iCloud account on the device, i think there is no ability to remote track it.

    now if someone delete icloud account i think you have to contact apple support.
