HELP! LOST DRONE!

Any advice to recover a lost drone would be appreciated. Went outside my house and flew over my neighborhood for practice and was about to bring the drone back from a couple of blocks away. I switched to home since I saw battery was getting low and it was in my sight. Suddenly the receiver drops connection completely and I see the drone descending approximately 2 blocks away. Landing gear was up so I am sure it didn't land well where ever it may have come down.
Does anyone have suggestions as to how I may be able to pinpoint it's last location from the receiver? I assume it landed in someone's yard since I drove around for over an hour and couldn't find it anywhere. Asked a ton of neighbors and of course no one saw anything.
Thanks in advance.

Best buy a tracker from trackimo I got one for this very case it pings your phone every few seconds so you know we're it is at all times hope you find it

The location is stored in ST-16 telemetry as the last GPS position recorded.

For others that experience a lost drone situation, do not turn off the ST-16 until after you check the GPS coordinates displayed on the screen. If still present, write them down. That saves digging through tel files.
