Oh dear, i know exactly how you feel as we managed to loose a 4ft royal once. She had got under our floor boards as we had a whole at the time we was fixing!
Will give you as much help as i can. First of all read this

http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/snake...-know-how.html

Its how to make a snake trap, brill for small snakes!

Heres a few more tips to help

  • Check dark warm places, under beds, sofas, radiators, vivs, under fridge. Re-check often.
  • Leave out water bowls as they will search for water, they often turn up in bathrooms as warmer and has water
  • Leave out lots of hides, and check them daily
  • Leave out a heat source eg heatmat as it may attract them to warm up.
  • Leave out food eg pinkie mice as smell may attract them too if hungry
Hope this helps x

Check your viv?! Sounds like a hole to me, Even a tiny one they can get through!

I lost my hatchling magic a few years ago, it is so upsetting I know. She was a beautiful albino corn

Unhappy thanks all...

will try to get the trap set up now. Unfortunately i live in an old house so there are plenty of holes in the floorboards etc for it to go

I am amazed at how small the hole it must have escaped from. The only possible place would be where the cables came into the vivarium.

So upsetting.
