I had my new baby out tonight in a bonding pouch and he flew out and ran off. He got into the corner and just dissapeared. I've been up all night searching, sitting in the dark and there in no sign off him. I thought I heard a couple sounds in the kitchen but that was hours ago. I am so afraid that I am never going to find him. Please help, how do I get him to come out?!

I would make sure no other animals can get to your baby and then set up several pouches and food bowls. Check any boxes of open food because weve seen some people find them in cracker boxes to empty milk jugs.
Wont be long your baby will be ready ro curl up for bed frown and then you really wont hear them until dark again.

I hope you find him/her soon!!!!!!!!!!

Turn off all power, the main breaker if you can. Sit very still and listen.

Make sure the toilet seats are CLOSED and there is NO standing water anywhere! Don't sit on a couch, recliner, bed or anything, suggies will hide in them and also in blankets!

I've got pouches and food everywhere, I even put out wheels. I closed up everything and I've been sitting in the dark her since 9:00 when he got away from me. I moved his cage into the room I lost him in but still no sign of him. I am soo worried. I just got him and he is still crabby and shy (just let me hold him the first time yesterday). If I ever do spot him I am not sure how I will cacth him....but I don't think he's come out of hiding all night.

If you haven't found him yet, it may be tonight. Does he crab at any particular sound? Does he have a favorite spot?

Couple of things:

1. Do not sit down without checking the spot out completely!
2. DO NOT do laundry - if you must, shake and pat every piece of clothing.
3. Do not remove anything from the house without a complete check. Check pockets, hoods, purses, anything that is carried out of the house.
4. Keep all other animals out today.
5. Make sure there is no standing water - buckets or toilets.

Tonight: Put food out in a centralized location and sit next to it in the dark. Have pouches with his scent on it. Put out his favorite food and some water to drink. Hopefully, he will come to the food and stay in the pouch.

I posted at the same time! Does he crab at loud noises? Walk around the house with a chip bag and crinkle it - once he is in bed, he will crab from there and you can grab the whole sleeping place and shove it in the cage. Good luck!

If you are not able to catch him once you find him, you can try throwing a piece of fleece over him and picking him up through the fleece. Good luck! smile

Nothing yet...I have to go to work for a few hours, then I am cancleing tutoring so I can search every inch of the house. I think he's either in the couch or somewhere in the kitchen-which makes finding him very hard. I did try being noisy at some point last night in desperation, but I did not here any crabbing...I'm going to try that again today. Crinkling a bag sounds like a good idea. I guess I don't have to worry about scaring him from coming out now until tonight since he will be sleeping all day. Thanks for all the advice, if you all have any other ideas let me know... anyone used traps?

I'm still looking. I've pretty much looked everywhere. I saw some poop and pee under couch. My house is sure going to be clean by the time I find him...I have no idea where he could be. I still need to look around the bed and in dressers and somehow under the appliances in the kitchen. I hope he comes out tonight. I am so sore and tired.

Erin I hope you can find the baby !!!!
First time I lost my baby boy he was inside of my couch !!!! I don't know how in the world he got there, I have had to just cut the hole couch to get him, I was till 5 am looking for him. When I lost my baby girl the first time, she was in my closet, on my clothes...
This little guys love to hire, just try to go piece of the house inch by inch.
Wish you all the good luck and keep us updated

They can hide anywhere.
One of my guys jumped off my husband when he came walking up the hall from the bedroom. Turned around and he was gone.
We looked everywhere. We found him an hour later just inside my sons bedroom door he has a rack that he hangs his hats on.
There he was sitting in one of the hats watching us rum around looking for him... He looked very proud of himself.lol

One of my girls got out of her cage during the night.
She had discovered if she pushed where her stealth wheel hung she could squeeze out. We heard he before we knew she was missing. She had fallen into one of the empty 5 gallon water bottles in the laundry room. shakehead

I agree with trying to make some noise it doesn't always work.
Hopefully you will have some luck as it gets darker out.
Just remember they can be anywhere.

Have you taken apart the couch to see if your baby is in it underneath? (carefully, of course!)

No sign of him yet, but night has fallen and I have pouches with treats and food and water at every turn. I hope to hear from him soon. I've been over EVERY inch of the house in a systematic search so I suspect he's in the couch or in the kitchen somewhere...we turned over the couch yesterday but still couldn't see him. It is a big leather reclining couch, so he could still be in there. I just don't know, have to hope to hear him. He was so crabby too, I would just give anything to hear his little crab now, I will never complan about his crabby butt again! But there is nothing but silence.

I would take the couch apart, at least part of it at first. If it's stapled, nailed or however the leather is attached. It can be put back together again. He may be trapped in there and eating something like insulation or chewing on something not good for him.

Make sure there are no holes around plumbing pipes, if there are, use tin foil to cover them.

Is there any way he could have gotten outside?

I hope you find him safe tonight!!! hug2

I'm sorry to hear your baby still hasn't turned up. I know how terrible it is, two of ours have tried escaping their cages. Praying you find him tonight.

No I am still looking. I have been sitting in the dark the last 2 hours, don't here anything yet. I keep thinking I here the wheel going but it's just stupid geese squacking. I think I might try to take the couch apart soon, that was the only place I saw evidence of him roaming. My puppy hasn't heard anything either for a while-he is helping me listen with his giant ears-I added pics. I can't believe I haven't found him yet.

Check your pantry too! Anywhere you keep cereal, oatmeal, food stuff! He might have climbed into a box looking for something yummy.

Yeah, it's pretty lonley here in the dark and quiet. All my friends are at a party tonight frown I said there is no way I am going anywhere till I find my baby! I went through the pantry this afternoon, and all the laundry, I'll try the laundry again. I have no idea which room he's in so I keep switching every hour or so. If he would just make some noise and give me a clue! Thanks for all the ideas.

Some of our gliders like to play hide and seek in the closets in our bedroom. They can be pretty hard to see between hangers. Check pockets of clothes that are hanging too.

Old shoes, new shoes, shoeboxes, inside appliances like stove or behind microwave, fridge.

Towels and sheets that are folded, he may have gotten inside one of those and fell asleep.
