Oh no! If he is that small and in the "flea stage" (where they jump a lot), then I understand your concern, cuz this could be a very difficult task!!!
I have always heard (and I think I have heard here as well, in previous posts! ) that a good technique is to put a bucket on the floor, standing normally, that is too deep for a mouse to jump out...and then put something yummy in it, and stack some books going up the side of it on the outside so that he can get in, but won't be able to get out.
Other than that, you may just have to go out and buy a humane trap from a department store type deal...I think there is a brand called Have A Heart???

I hope you can find Satan.I used to buy the cube traps, put peanut butter on a cracker and push it to the back so they have to go in.No way they can get out.

Thats exactly what i was going to suggest the bucket method either that or a jam jar with him being a baby something thats easy for him to get into but hard to get out! I really hope you find him very soon
