it says spent and what does that mean

It typically means money was received in one transaction and later spent in a second, separate transaction. It is a historical record. You no longer have that money.

It did not arrive to the wallet i sent it too!

It may be due to one of ...

  • The transaction fee was too low and you need to be patient.
  • Your receiving wallet isn't synchronised or has some other problem.
  • You sent the money to a different address than the one you expected.
  • The recipient is not telling you the truth.
  • You are the victim of some sort of scam.

I need it to be located ...

You can see the details of the spending transaction in any blockchain explorer by typing in the address and by typing in the transaction-Id of the transaction that spent the money.

Bitcoin is pseudo anonymous. This means you won't be easily able to identify a person or organisation associated with a receiving address. Without other information I doubt the recipient can be identified.

... and returned or sent to the wallet i gave

Since Bitcoin transactions cannot be reversed, the only way this can happen is if you know the recipient and persuade them to make a third transaction that pays you a similar amount.

Beware people offering to get your money back for a fee, this is a favourite trick of scammers.
