If you have already seen it, you can track it using the Pokedex.

If you haven't already seen it, you'll run into it eventually in the wild. I've noticed that I could hear distant roars when Latias was near.
Have you played Gold, Silver, or Crystal? The method of tracking and catching Latias is the same as with the Legendary Dogs.
:) Thanks everybody!Feel free to post again!!!

In Sapphire, you will only find Latios on Southern Island after you get Eon Ticket. You'd find Latias in the wild there.
In Ruby, which I'm assuming you have, you'll meet Latios in the wild and Latias on Southern Island. After you've met it once, you'll be able to see where it's at using your Pokedex. It will run as soon as it can, though. Here's how I caught mine:
1st: Get A Wobbuffet! It's ability will keep Latias/Latios from running away. I raised it up to about level 37 and put Leftovers on it. Something with Mean Look would work, too, if it's faster than Latios.
Check your Pokedex, see where Latios is at. In my game, it tended to travel in a circular, counter-clockwise pattern. I just used Fly to get to the area in front of it. Repeat until you are in the same area as Latios. THEN SAVE THE GAME!!!! IF YOU KO LATIOS OR LATIAS, THEY WON'T APPEAR AGAIN.
Side note: It isn't necessarily the 1st wild Pokemon you will meet.
Bring lots of healing (30 or so lemonade, Super Potion, whatever you prefer). Be prepared and patient; Latios knows Recover, it will take a while to bring it's HP down and keep it down.
Use Mirror Coat until it's health is in the red, then start thowing Ultra Balls.
If you accidentally KO Latios, just shut your game off and start over. Latios will be in a different area, but at least you'll still be able to catch it!

Weird, I found my Latias surfing by Mount Pyre. You may want to look there.
