Exclamation Lost mystery snail

So I bought a mystery snail the other day for my betta tank and I believe my betta was a bit aggressive because I noticed it would nip at her. I saw her go into a cave structure (my tank is 4 gallons) - I went to have supper prior to removing her. After about an hour; I went to remove her and I could not find her.
I removed all decorations and looked through the sand. My tank has a lid on it but two small holes on both sides for cables. (she is defiantly too big to fit through) .

ive also checked around the tank the lid everywhere!

Where the heck could she be? How long will she be able to survive?!
I will be traveling tomorrow and won't be able to look for her any longer.
However my family is still at home and can search for her.
Anyone know how far they could go?!

Help!

Did you check the filter? Did you check the roof of the cave?

Make sure not to remove any decor from tank!!! Because she's prolly in an obscure crevice and will die if left out tooooo long
