Hello,
It is quite unlikely for a stent to move to other parts of the body. It must have come out with the catheter. To confirm the diagnosis, you can get an ultrasound or a CT scan abdomen done while will clear the position of the stent whether it is present inside the body (less likely) or has come out with catheter.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
