What do you do when a fish vanishes without a trace?

One of my blue green chromis' has vanished.

I think he's been sick for a few weeks (Swimming backwards in circles - that's not normal), but now he's completely vanished.

I have a lid on the tank, so i know he's not carpet surfing. I don't believe Chromis are known for digging holes in the sand, so I'm pretty sure he's not in the substrate.

75 gallon / 180 litre system - Do I pull the thing apart to try to recover corpse, or work on the theory that clean up crew will have a bit more to munch on over the coming weeks?
