I went out with bread whic is how we found the others and usually jist me being out there is enough to send them running over so am worried. I went all through every bush in the yard and even through the woods near the yard. No sign.

Thank you, I hope so!!
And an update:
Still no sign of May. Went through every bush in the yard (also oke laid an egg under one lol), even through the woods. But... I traipsed through the woods and saw mid flight tracks and one single orange feather then found this at the edge of the woods far from where she was hiding. I bet that is the terrified one that was hiding next to a fallen pine branch by the run, absolutely traumatized. Thank God she is alive. Gotta check for injuries though.
I am going to go do something else and hope she comes home.
But this means something DID try to take them. My BO would no move, just sat crouched down in fear staring at me and she let me grab her.
I hope we find May and a predator didn't silently snag her.
