Is that map from A Tolkien Bestiary by David Day?

Cuiviénen is located to the north and east of Middle-earth and Utumno is likewise in the north as described early in the Silmarillion

Have you read Karen Wynn Fonstad's 'The Atlas of Middle-Earth'?
This has a very good map of the first age showing everything from Utumno to Cuivienenn to Taniquetil in Valinor.
It also has a diagram showing the location of Utumno during the time of the two pillars of light - Illuin and Ormal.
In the second diagram, the ruins of Utumno are placed just north of the middle of the Ered Engrin (Iron Mountains) which stretched from Beleriand in the West to the Orcarni (Mountains of the East - whose southourn tip was close to Cuivienen).

If you look at a map of Middle Earth in the Third age, it places the ruins of Utumno somewhere directly north of Eriador, and probably submerged under water in the 'Ice Bay' just south of the Cpae of Forochel.

I couldn't bring up that site.

But, they didn't have any map like those at 'The Encyclopedia of Arda' site, did they?
I always wondered where The Red Mountains were & the Sea of Helcar, etc.

BTW, are these maps from Tolkien's drawings, specifications or descriptions?

Or are they just somebody's guesses?

Great, Menchu, this is a great map indeed!
Well, Kraas, you can see "Utumno" written not far to the east of the lamp of Illuin.

Beleg, I hope you didn't get angry, cause I DO KNOW you were the "discoverer" of the site... :)

Those sites were ok, but the maps on one
were really fuzzy.I need to keep searching.
