Question Missing watchman goby

So I've recently started up my reef tank & my my one & only fish at the moment has came up missing. Being that watchman gobies r notorious jumpers I thouroughly check my overflow & filter system.. & no sign of him. There is no way for him to jump out so I'm left thinking my hammer coral ate him. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I've never had trouble w/ a hammer b4! But there is like no other possibility??

They love to dig! Look under LR or decorations if you need to find him, but best just to leave him alone and let him re-appear on his own. I had a shelf type setup with my rock being about 1/2" from the sand bed for my large rock, so my goby took to that cave type dwelling and never dug until the pistol dug out both of them a huge burrow and now constantly re-arranges my sand for me lol
