I got nervous the 1st few times, but I always end up finding them. even the few times where it took me a good 10 minutes to find them, I always did because there was nowhere else for them to go.
also, with 2 of my hamsters, they come running to me when I pat the floor. it sounds like you have a great bond with your hamster so he might do that also
if you really don't feel comfortable, maybe you can get one of those really big play pens, where you can sit in with him? I don't know which type you have, so maybe you have one that size already, but they're much harder to escape because they're so tall.
some ppl also set up a run in their bathtub, or they let their hamster run around in a kiddy pool.
hope this was helpful, good luck!!
Bathtub is a great idea! For taming for now and some out of cage time. If you have one. It sounds like one of those playpens with bars that is quite low - is that right? I would do some bathtub taming and then think about either hamster proofing an area of a room or thinking about a different playpen. It can be tricky though as some playpens are not cheap and some are cheaper but take up too much space to store. It can be easier to just to hamsterproof a room.
