clown gone MIA

I'm missing one of my clowns!!!! I was out of town this weekend, and both of my clowns were swimming happily on Friday, I got back late last night and only noticed one fish. I wasn't too concerned because it was VERY late at night and thought he was just sleeping behind some rock. This morning, I still didn't see him, and now... this afternoon, he still hasn't made an appearance.
Other tank inhabitants: some blue legged hermits, small rock crab, a long spinned urchin, lots of self collected snails and grass/glass shrimp. Is it possible something could have happened to him, and then my clean-up crew cleaned him up that quickly???? The one missing is the more active of the two (they are still young, but I thought that it was going to become the dominant one).

*sigh* I'm hoping he shows up... but its not looking so good.

I'm so sorry, I hope he shows.
I got back from my vacation a month ago and one of mine was missing so I know how you feel.
Don't see anything in your tank that would have taken him.
Keeping fingers crossed.

I've had 2 clowns go MIA like that. I've always suspected my sally lightfoot or CBS but have never proven anything. Also, make sure he didn't jump out somehow. Hopefully he turns up.
