if you have a B&Q near you, they sell live traps.

I have used one a while back for catching an escaped rat, they work really well,

only other suggestion is to just leave an open cage out with bedding food, water etc.

they usually come back to it, but you have to spot them in it, to close the door.

good luck with the hunt.

This sounds silly, but it works...

Get a small trash bin. Layer the bottom with a towel or bedding...at least two inches of bedding. Make a long ramp that leads up to the lip of the can. Put a favorite treat...like a Cheerio smeared with a bit of Peanut Butter at the top of the ramp, then sprinkle the floor of the bin with more cheerios (or whatever) and a shallow dish of water. Put the entire contraption near where you think your mouse is hiding out. You mouse will crawl up the ramp to get the first treat, then leap in for the rest.....but cannot leap out.
