I did the same thing, it only took him like 5 minutes to find them and then like 20 to get them.
Peanut butter works well and also bananas. If you don't have any pets I just buy the rat poison that comes in ball shape, crush it and mix it with the peanut butter in one of those little foam plates. Be careful when using poison, remember to use gloves and of course discard the plate after use.
Another thing I use are the glue traps they always fall for it. I don't use the pressure traps because if there are a few rats, they aren't stupid when one falls for it they know that they must not eat from that. That's why I use the glue trap and also I use a lot and by a lot I mean like 10 through the whole room. I can say the 90% of time I catch all of them in the first night.
