Hermits dissapear

I've had three hermits disappear on me so far. No traces of them or their shells left behind. Do they do this when theyre dying? My tank is small and I have no livestock that would eat them.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
