I'll give you an example which is easier...

Judith is looking for her toy somewhere in the house but didn't find it.. she will have to look elsewhere!!!

so she has to start in that place [somewhere] and THEN she looks outside that place [elsewhere]

i hope i didn't confuse you.

"Somewhere" includes every possible place.

Tom: I can't find the remote.
Amy: It must be somewhere...
Tom: That's right. I'll start the search here.

"Elsewhere" means "not here", "somewhere other than here", etc.

Tom: Amy, I've searched this entire room, and the remote is not here.
Amy: Yeah, Tom, it must be elsewhere.
