Seems that you set the home point to here: https://goo.gl/maps/9ohPbwuZCfq
And then it landed there.

Try using the find my drone menu on the app top right menu on the opening screen and it should take you there...

Thanks for answer!
"Seems that you set the home point to here" - I will try to search it here tomorrow. But as I see from log
- drone goes through this point without stop.

I haven't "Find my drone" function for Phantom 3 se. I tried install dji go 4 and choose Phantom 4 then click "Find my drone" - no success.

Sorry, that was not accurate, you didn't set the home point, but it was auto landing at it's last position and would have continued to land.  Since you were holding the right stick it was moving but would have stopped and then landed after a few seconds of you loosing contact so it will be a little to the North West of that last position, somewhere near the centre of the field: https://goo.gl/maps/6WNEvyQ3zwA2

I doubt it got to the next road.

I'm a bit puzzled about why you flew it away, maybe you didn't realise that it was auto landing?

Your Phantom lost control signal and came back to directly above the home point at 1:03.4 and commenced autolanding.
If you had taken your hands off the joysticks, it would have come down and landed right where you launched it.
But you were pushing the right stick hard forward while it was autolanding, which flew the Phantom further towards the west.
You kept the right stick forward, flying at full speed.
When the signal was lost, the Phantom was 211 metres from the homepoint and 132 metres up

Hi Alexander, sorry for the loss. Please try to check the last coordinates on the flight records to see whether the drone can be found.

Please RTFM before using app functions or user friendly parameters that you don’t quite have a handle upon.

I do hope and have faith, that you can find it, soon.

Funny he never heard it flying directly above?

Mine is quite loud, even when at a relative high elevation.  Another reason I prefer noisy props. :-)

It had only recently taken off when it was overhead so should of been audible all the time until it was flown away using the sticks.  The problem seems to have been that signal was lost temporarily while it was overhead which triggered an RTH and then an auto land.  It was then flown away while in auto land so when contact was lost again it just continued with the auto land instead of doing an RTH.   I assume that the pilot didn't realise that it was in auto land.

Not sure how long it would take to stop on loosing contact in that situation where it is already in auto land, I think I'll change my guess to just beyond the next road: https://goo.gl/maps/gWG1HpmYPVq , or maybe in the top of the trees just before the road!

Hi all!
  Thank you for your help. Still trying to find drone about 4 hours today, no success yet... Starting with the point where the signal off. We meet some spectators that saw it and says the drone is fly away from this point. Spectator 2 (on attached image) says that drone fly to farm and than stop and begin landing (?)... Now going to continue search...

I would expect a P4 to have stopped before reaching spectator 2, but for a P3 I don't know, maybe it could still hear the controller and knew that you were still holding the sticks even though the controller couldn't hear the P3, in which case you just have to search where spectator 2 thought it stopped.  We do know that it was in auto land mode and will have landed where it stopped.

What is my critical mistake in this case? Is there drone setting to force return home when signal lost? not just "auto land" anywhere

When the signal was lost, it did return home, then started the auto land, then you pushed the right stick and flew it away from home until it lost contact again.  Because it was already auto landing it continued the auto land.
