Where can my tortoise be??

Hi, my tortoise has been missing for about a month now, he lived in our backyard, one day he was gone. We search just about everyday for him, we see no holes anywhere, our backyard is fenced in so I don't think he could get out. I just cannot believe he is still alive, we live in Yuma, AZ where it gets soooo hot. I would think that if he has passed, I'd find his body or shell somewhere? I just don't know what to do. Like I said we have searched everywhere. We have a grass in our backyard with sprinklers that go off twice a day, but I don't know if he'd be able to survive with that. Do you think he could still be in our yard?

Not knowing your yard, it's hard to say whether your tortoise could still be in it.

Have you put up posters and advertised in the local paper where you live?

Have you contacted vets and reptile rescue organizations?

I don't think sprinklers would be a problem for a tortoise.
