I would advise checking all the places where he could climb up. For example, it is curtains on the windows. I remember that there were cases on the forum when a dragon was found in the closet on a hanger under clothes. They are excellent climbers, take that into account.

As long as the rooms are below 85°F he should feel the urge to warm up at some point.
I'd look for him hiding in thight corners or maybe he did already try to get some elevation in hope to get warm.
I'd put up the brightest lamp you can find to lure him out.

Maybe @xp29 has some more ideas...?
can you follow me?

You should be careful putting a baby out in the open like that. They spend all their life in a pretty small space and putting them in the open will very likely scare them at first. He'll probably want to go hide somewhere because he is just overwhelmed by everything and afraid. His fight or flight reflex would be supercharged in this situation.
Keep him on your hand or chest/shoulder for now.

Also he might not recognise you at first. reptiles and birds have more color receptors than we humans do, so they perceive colors different and probably even more different under natural sunlight compared to artificial lights. We have only red, blue and green receptors (everything you see is a mixture of those colors) and they have like four or five colors they can see.

And don't worry, my big boy saw the outside world for the first time when he was eight months old and he would puff up and open his mouth at me like I've never seen him. He was quite intimidating as he was already quite big at this age.
They also see spectrums of light we can't. We look totally different to them in sunlight. After they get used to it, they calm a little but everyone of mine are more edgey with me outside. I've had a couple that never learned to like being outside. Snickers hated it and Sinatra does also. Snickers did like car rides though, go figure 🤔

I'm late to this post, I'm glad he was found. I've only ever lost 1 and it was Ruby (left the habitat unlocked and she pushed it open) so she didn't go far, but it scared the bejebbers out of us till we found her.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
