    Here is a website that has tips on finding lost Leopard Geckos - Find an Escaped Gecko | Gecko Time
    There is no real way to lure the gecko out.

    Lay out food dishes and heat sources in multiple areas.

    Check everywhere that Gizmo could crawl under and/or is dark. Whenever I played with my gecko she used to always try to go somewhere dark. Like under a couch. Gizmo could be anywhere but the best bet is somewhere dark, probably under something.

    Also don't give up searching. Geckos can last awhile without food, so if you can't find her today, keep looking. They also may move to a place you already checked, so keep checking everything.

    I hope you find your gecko. If you have a dog/cat, watch their behavior, because sometimes they can sniff them out for you. My g/f had a gecko that jumped out of a bucket, she ended up following one of her cats who was scratching the floor outside the closet. So she flipped the closet upside down, and then found the gecko underneath the floor board inside the closet.

    Your gecko could be anywhere, check the holes and vents where the gecko could get down or out.

    Forgot if this was on the article I put a link too but if you are 100% certain she isn't in a place you checked try to block it off.

    Try leaving out the moist hide in the area where you see the most activity. Use the ones from the enclosure.

    Maybe you will get lucky and find Gizmo curled up in the moist hide in the morning ...
