    oh no lol everytime iv had a lost hampster they go behind washing machines or fridges, anywhere hidden, if ur reallllly quite u may hear nibbling or scurrying, put some food somewhere and watch patiently and silenty, or get a friendly trap, hope you find it xxx

    Behind the refrigerator? It's dark and warm. It's where snakes like to hide anyway :D

    Hmmm when mine used to escape it always went to where it was warm usually my mums room in the corner where the pipes are.

    Try under the radiators, under beds ect....

    We used to leave a trail of hamster food out when they escaped. They've gotta get hungry sooner or later.

    Get a shallow bin and make some steps up to it. Make a food trail up teh steps and a bit of food in the bin.
    The hamster should follow the food and go into the bin (he wont get hurt falling).
    We always did this with our escaped critters. Theres no way back out of the bin so its a harmless trap to find them again.

    I dont have any particular way, but thought id give you some hope...years ago my hamster disappeared, it was in the walls, I could hear it scurrying about! I was so upset, thought for sure it was dead...so there was a little bit where the floorboards came up, I put its ladders down them, and food at the bottom and the top...nothing...days went by, eventually I went to clean out my other hamsters, and there it was! Asleep in the clean bedding! So they do come back themselves sometimes :)
