My clown is missing!!!

Got home today and one of my clowns is missing. I have a biocube 29. It is nowhere to be seen. I have a fish guard so it can not get in back, I checked all chambers anyway. I have the hood on. Not near the powerhead. My other livestock is: black and white clown, bangaii cardinal, engineer goby that has tunnels under one big rock, emerald crab, 3 blue leg crabs, 2 peppermint shrimp, coral banded shrimp, brittle star, and blue linkia star. Could any of these have done anything to it? I can't figure out where it could be if it is dead. Anyone have any clue what could have happened? I really don't want to tear the tank apart to find it. Is it a must to find it and get it out or will the snails and crabs take care of it?

Update, I found my clown. I was moving some pumps I have used in the past and noticed that one smelled. There was the fish in the intake!
