Perhaps your locate database is out of date.  It gets updated weekly by 
the script 310.locate in /etc/periodic/weekly/.  Try running it manually.

However if you just want to see where a the MySQL stuff is installed try 
`pkg_info -L xxx' where xxx is the name of the package you're interested 
in - pkg_info with no options should help you determine this).
