Clown fish question

So I'm at college and my mom is watching my tank and she said that the 2 clowns went missing. I asked her if they were acting weird the last time she saw them and she said one of them was digging in the sand.

And thing I should be worried of, worried they died, or is that sign of hosting?

I doubt they would be hosting. What are your parameters? Are they new additions? Hope they do well. It might be a sign of stress. Are they eating okay?

If they are missing, i would be looking on the carpet, in sump, overflow boxes or anywhere else they could have gotten caught. Clowns really arnt ones to just vanish, especially 2.
