Lost remote in the vents

I had my radio remote on top of the dashboard and it feel down into the vents. Now when I look down into the vents I don't see it. Did it fall all the way to the bottom? Is there an easy way to get it out? Any ideas?

Unless it was a really small remote I don't think it wouldve went down a vent, if you haven't already, look behind the dash (I loose stuff there all the time). If it did fall down the vent, you have a few options, you could go fishing down the vent (the vent pops out to make the hole larger, be careful not to break it though), you can drive the jeep around going around as many corners and hitting all the bumps you can to get it to the bottom of the dash (then just disconnect the tube at the bottom and get it. Or you can pull the whole heater tube thingy out, which may involve pulling the entire dash to get. Either way, it'll be a pain so hopefully it just fell behind.

The remote was pretty skinny so I had it propped up sticking out of the vent for easy access. But i didn't think it would be able to fall in. So I'm 99% sure it's in there. I don't wanna take apart the dash it's not worth all that work. I'll try fishing for it but I couldn't see it when I looked in with a flash light. I was hoping all I would need to do is take apart one of the peaces below the dash and it would be sitting there.

I would fold the windshield down and check behind the dash. The only way I could forsee it falling in the vent is if some of the vents were broken out.
