    Gdzie jest mój portfel? - Jest pod stołem. You should use instrumental case there [(z) kim?, (z) czym?] which follows such prepositions as: pod, z, nad, przed, za, między. Accusative (kogo? co?) would rather suit in "Widzę stół", locative goes rather with prepositions: o, w, na, po, przy; "Mówię o stole", "Lampa stoi przy stole".
    However if the answer to "Gdzie jest mój portfel?" was "Jest na stole", you would use locative there (as you can see by "na" preposition).
