My ants escaped!

So over night my small lepisiota colony escaped. I think they are nesting under something in my room.
How should I get them back when I find them?

If it helps they had completely vanished from their setup overnight.

ohh, first try looking around every were and do a through clean, next once you have found the ants, grab the queen and then use a hand held vacuum to suck up the rest of the ants.
