Help locate my son's retainer - missing upon awakening yesterday morning...
Any psychics or intuitives or regular Joes wanna give it a shot?

My 13 year old went to bed with both of his retainers in - woke up with only the top one.

It is a Hawley type wire/plastic retainer - and it is super highly unlikely that it's been swallowed. (I've asked the Ortho. and researched online.)

Have torn his room up (and mine) and pretty much disassembled the bed(s) - no luck.

I have looked everywhere obvious and some places that are obscure...

I have looked under everything - since we do have a cat that likes to bat things around.

I cannot begin to tell you all the places I've looked.

A bit of backstory to help you...

The retainer was definitely there earlier in the evening - I last saw it at about 6 PM.

My boy was not feeling well that evening, had a bit of the chills and just overall yuck - so he took some Nyquil and hit the sack fairly early.

He is sometimes a sleepwalker - but I'm almost certain he did not come out of his room till much later - when I went into his room to check on him - and he was getting up out of bed. I think he was sleepwalking/talking at this time (can be hard to tell) - but he headed for my room and just layed down in there till morning - except for when he got up once and got a drink from the kitchen. Next morning - no retainer.

I stay up late and am a light sleeper - so I'm pretty sure that's all he did during the night. Yet the retainer is missing - so who knows...

It will cost over $200 to replace. Damn.

Let me know what you "see" GLP... Thanks!

Re: Help locate my son's retainer - missing upon awakening yesterday morning...
Thanks GLP - most of you anyway :)

Still no luck. Re-checked the bathrooms. (Hope it didn't get flushed.)

Triple checked the hampers.

Not on kitchen floor - even rolled out fridge and stove.

We don't have a dog.

I'm pretty sure it's not in my ass - but I did tell my boy to watch his - LOL.

Seriously - if he did by some freak chance swallow it - it's gonna have to come out sometime...

He got up, went to the bathroom, check behind his nightstand, in the hallway and in the bathroom, including cabinets. Look behind the toilet tank. Next he got a drink of water, check in the cabinet where the cups are, along the sides of the fridge and stove. Got some water, then....put the cup in the dishwasher? Check the dishwasher, and along the baseboards.

Re: Help locate my son's retainer - missing upon awakening yesterday morning...
I'm no psychic...but whenever something is lost, I take it as a sign I need to clean. I start by trying NOT to look for anything, but just start cleaning and tidying. When I get so absorbed in cleaning that I've finally forgotten what I was looking for, I usually find it and end up with a tidy house to boot. I would clean your son's bed really well, of course, and double check no retainer is in anything before you launder clothes. Get your family to all clean the house - it WILL show up.

Have you checked below the head board, close to the wall?

You may also want to check beside the cookie jar in case he grabbed a quick snack.
