even if its not a medically significant scorpion you dont want it stinging your little dude or kitties.
what kind of scorpion is it??
how long has it been missing?

id guess any escapee is going to travel at night along the bottom of the walls and trying to look for a warm,dark spot in the house and maybe humid like under a sink by the tub or shower,under the fridge by the washer.if its a bark it could be anywhere on your walls and ceiling at night.get a blacklight flashlight look in and under everything especially in the dark spots.

good luck in your search,hopefully nobody gets stung and id suggest if you find it or keep another scorpion you get really anal about preventative measures to prevent this from happening again.

yeah get yourself a uv torch asap and get looking at night what species is it? and how old?
also where are you from depending on the temps of your house it may be tough for the scorp to survive, how olds your lil boy?

if your really worried maybe think about getting something to spray around to kill the scorpion as its really not worth you kid getting stung..i know its not nice but you need to prioritise

I would say best thing/ first thing to do is get some of the sticky fly cards, cut them into strips and lay them on the floor near the corners of the room[s]. It'll probably simply get stuck on one as it comes out at night, provided of course it's not a climby up species.
Oh, yeah, get a blacklight torch. Dirt cheap off ebay.

It's tiny then, are you sure it got out? without a uv torch it will be hard to tell if it's burrowed out of view

Yeah the cat MAY have gotten to it and it MAY have found a way out. Also it MAY or MAY not be dead. How long has it been missing? You never answered anyone's questions of what kind of scorpion it is. How did it even manage to escape?

LOL BEAT ME TO IT!!!

Anyway, If it is a 2i of ANYTHING and it got out I wouldnt sweat it. It will die before doing anything, and I doubt you have a very harsh scorpion judging by the way you're talking about it and the way you're generalizing it. I'm going to educatingly guess an emperor because sometime those babies can be skittish and escape, i've had one escape on me before and found it 4 days later in the closet between my shoes by my front door one afternoon. Even if you have like a bicolor or an australis, if it's 2i or even 3i it's just more than likely not going to be a problem, it'll die by squishing or something before it'll do any harm more often than not.

1.what was your scorpion kept in specifically?
2.how was that enclosure when you found it?
3.do you keep the enclosure out of reach of your child and cats?
4.how old is your child?
5.are you writing all your posts on a cell phone or something?

Look in smaller areas like closets and anywhere with heaters.
