Just in case...while digging, also treat this like a lost tort.

Try putting food and water near a spot where the early AM sun hits and he might be likely to bask.

Tell any children that he's lost. Offer a reward to whoever finds him. Kids are good at looking for them. Maybe put food near the burrow entrance as well. Make him want to come out if he can.

What's his name?

And we're almost neighbors...I'm on the Salton Sea.
His name is "Over The Top". We originally had 3 and we would always find him on top of the others. Sadly they were stolen many years ago ๐Ÿ˜”.

Oh my! Does the burrow go straight back, or does it take a turn down?
What kind of tortoise?
Can you see him?
Hi KarenSoCal, we found him.๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”. It appears as though he had passed away several months ago ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ. Today is a very sad day. I want to thank you and everyone else for your ideas and comments. God Bless.

Oh, my gosh, I'm so sorry for your loss.
That being said, this is/could be a VERY dangerous situation. For future information, as a retired Sewer maintenance technician, this would be considered a "Confined Space Entry".
People die going into situations like this. I don't want to be an alarmist, BUT, if you are EVER put in this situ, Be VERY careful.
A word of advice....
