Or, rather, lack of an update. It still has not been located. Anyone have any tips to pass along to my parents?

Bats use audiolocation. Listen for it.
Turn on every single light in every single room of the house. That's the only thing that worked for me.
I see Mom filled you in about our bat problem. We haven't found it, despite a couple of hours walking around with a flashlight and the fireproof LL Bean gloves (for picking up the bat if I were unfortunate enough to find it). Mom called a batproofing service and they're coming Tuesday. All in all an unwelcome development.
Congratulations on what sounds like a successful presentation! I have your commencement date in both my calendars.
At the Financial Aid Institute last week I had a woman in my group from Simmons - Marie Charles, if you ever run across her.
I hope your blogathon is going well and I'm glad to see you've had a visit.
One of my friends had a bat in their house. Their dad tried to hit it with a tennis racquet. It fell, and hit a lit gas burner on the stove, so it caught on fire. Then it flew around the kitchen, on fire, and his dad tried to hit it with the sprayer/hose thing from the kitchen sink. They finally caught it and it died in the sink, drowned.
It's a story you have to hear for it to be funny, but I wish your parents much better luck and a non-destroyed kitchen.
