Sometimes babies feed at different times. It could have been sleeping and he didn't see it or it may not have survived. If it didn't survive mom would have cleaned up the body and you wouldn't be able to tell. Don't try to find it. If it's there and just was sleeping you could stress mom and cause the babies to be hurt. If it didn't survive looking for it won't help.
