If I understand the situation correctly, something like this is all it

    (defun locate-open-in-dired (file)
      (interactive (list (dired-filename-at-point)))
      (cond ((file-directory-p file)
             (dired file))
            ((file-regular-p file)
             (dired (file-name-directory file)))
             (error "Not a file: '%s'" file))))

    (define-key locate-mode-map (kbd "C-c d") #'locate-open-in-dired)
