If they have removed BB Protect, or wiped the device, then there isn't much you can do.

Re: so do you reckon that the person/thief has wiped out my device?

Your BB will still be listed in BB Protect until you delete it from there. It doesn't mean you'll be able to connect to the device. When you log on to BB Protect you normally will see a battery and signal level meter for the device. If you don't see that then you're not connecting to the device. Not connecting can be from no signal, new sim card, wiped device, etc. BB Protect was not meant to be a way to get the device back should it be stolen. It was meant to be a way to find it if you lost it, lock it, and a few other features. If someone wants the device and puts a new sim in it then there's not much you can do.
