One of my Skyrim children was missing. I had no clue where he was. I knew he hadn’t been kidnapped because there was no ransom note or anything like that. Last I’d seen him, he’d come home to Proudspire Manor with a mudcrab asking if he could keep it. I spent about a month in-game searching for him. Going from each of my houses, thinking perhaps he’d gone there. Even going back to the people he used to work for as a stable boy, hoping he was there. I couldn’t find him anywhere.
Not knowing if he was simply “stuck” somewhere, I decided to have my Skyrim family move from Proudspire Manor to our house in Lakeside Manor, our house in Falkreath. Sure enough, the moment I waltz into the door, there’s my Skyrim son, greeting me the moment I walk into the door. As if nothing had happened.
Course, somewhere between moving houses, the pet mudcrab vanished.
