By using one of the many mobile phone location tracking services aimed
at businesses or concerned parents, and some trickery it is possibly
to get almost anyone's mobile phone position without their agreement.
All that is required is their mobile phone number, and carrier.

Over the past year a number sites have popped up offering web based
mobile phone tracking services. To use their services you purchase a
monthly subscription or set number of credits, and enter in the
targets phone number. The target then receives an SMS message asking
them to confirm they consent to the tracking. After the target
replies, the tracker can then request their position online and
receive a street address, post code, and map of their location with an
accuracy of around 250 meters.
