If there is a place to crawl out; they'll eventually find it. I keep water levels low enough and trim any emersed plants. As for one disappearing in your tank -it was likely eaten. Not a lot of mass to a shrimp and snails, other shrimp, and certainly most fish can clean up remains in short order.

I once had an Australian red claw crayfish climb out of the tank, across the sheepskin rug, out through the sliding glass door, to throw itself off the balcony.. And still manage to crawl about 10 feet to where I found the body by the sidewalk.
The semi-humorous part of that was I was on my way to work so had to leave it.. then that afternoon the landscapers came through and trimmed bushes in the complex, and body was gone when I got back. I often wonder what those landscapers thought when they found a 10 inch multicolored lobster in the wilds of new jersey.
