Missing Bicolor Angel!

I have a missing bicolor angel fish that went missing over night. There is no way he was sucked in the filters and not on the floor so he didn't jump out. I lifted up my insert and only LR to make sure he was not wedged under but did not see anything. Could my 5 HC's have eaten it over night? Is this a common thing to happen? It was in my tank for about a month. Any ideas
Thanks

Could have happened if he was pretty small and the hermits a decent size.

Did your fish show any signs of distress when you last saw him?

I had the EXACT same thing happen to my angel a few weeks ago. He never showed any signs of illness or stress and was eating fine! Then all of the sudden he just disappeared. I still have no clue what happened!

Does your LR have any holes he can fit into? We "lost" our bi color Blenny. Couldn't find him for 2 days. Looked in the rock and he was in one of the holes.

No the LR's holes are way too small and I lifted and looked around and under for it. He was about 2 inches long and I have 5 small HC's 1 turbo, 1 Astrea, 3 bumblebees, 1 chocolate chip star and a cleaner shrimp. He didn't have any signs of stress or anything. He swam around happy and ate enough every time. Well sounds like I am not the first and I'd rather he be eaten than somewhere missing. How would I know if he is decomposing somewhere?
