Looks like the mat has a pattern in it.  Possible for it to fall in there.  I'd also check the plastic outlet cover, could be hiding in there (on the plastic part).

I do that with my glasses all the time--especially my reading ones. I scoured my office the other day looking for them and realized I had them on! I was holding the lockbox key contain as I showed a couple a gorgeous estate property. In the back was a gorgeous Koi pond. I bent over to take a look and angled the container down and plop! Key falls into Koi pond! All three of use couldn't find it! Turns out the agent didn't have a back up as the trust attorney gold her it was the ONLY key. Guess who paid to have the lock rekeyed!? Duh.

Sometimes agents can't figure out how to open those nifty little boxes. The boxes can act as a decoy.  Doing it the old fashioned way worked for decades.
