There's no easy way to find him if he's hiding. That would involve removing your rock and probably scaring the crap out of the fish if he is okay, which wont help him feel safe and come out. Fish can be pretty good at hiding sometimes, so it's possible he's okay.
What are your water parameters? Might sound like a stupid question, but are your lights on? I only ask because sometimes people turn them off for a few days with new fish, and chromis tend to hide when lights are off.
If your ammo and Trites are zero, I would move the other chromis back to the DT and get another chromis and hopefully them swimming around will draw out the other fish. If he's not ok, your CUC will take care of him. That's just what I would do. Hope your fish is okay!!
