You can try ordering online, but if you still cant do that, you can try placing the queen inside a small container with a wet cotton ball inside. Just make sure to keep on watering the cotton and make sure it stays moist and also to not disturb the queen as much as possible. Good luck!

The only possible reason is that they had escaped. Try to locate the holes or gaps that your ants escaped through.
