Hey Christy, I'm not sure if this will help or if it's feasable in your situation but I had I Bull Snake get away in my house once and what I had done was narrow down the possible places he could have gone into and set out markers. There was a hole on the bottom of the kitchen counter, a crack under the furnace for example. Then at night time before going to bed I made a line of flour around that hole and across every single doorway so he couldn't go past that point without disturbing it. Sure enough the next morning I could see it was disturbed at the hole between the counters and it allowed me to focus my recovery efforts there and thankfully I was able to coax him out of hiding. Knowing where he is is 90% of the battle. I wish you luck Christy let us know if he turns up. BTW make sure you check the warmest places in your house with great detail like the furnace room that's usually where they turn up. And if they really mean alot to you as a last resort you can purchase a little spy cam which is about the size of a 9 volt battery and costs about $100 to probe into small places. My brother hooked one up to a little remote controled dune buggy with a flash light attached to search out the crawl space under his house for his missing iguana. We all watched upstairs on the T.V and wouldn't you know it there he was right by the furnace ducts! We ended up noosing him out of there and he was fine. Just another possibility. Good Luck!
