Molting Cleaner Shrimp

So my Skunk Cleaner shrimp has been missing since saturday night. I have pepps before that molted and resurficed in a day or 2. Is it possibe that it's taking 5-6 days or has he become fish food? Haven't seen any shrimp parts in the tank...

If he did molt then they will hide for 3-5 days to allow their new shell and skin to harden.
