"Make sure the cage is secure!" I always said to make sure the top screen is tight. My daughter said, "He won't leave his home." She was an older teen at the time, famous last words!
One night, he was missing. Every day and night, we kept a towel rolled under her door. We searched her room multiple times, looking up and down, and taking the room apart. Four months later, she came home late to find her thin snake gliding across the floor.
It had been winter, so he may have holed up somewhere cool in her room, but we were so happy to find her snake "Austin" again. I am so glad we were diligent about keeping that towel under her door for so long.

I am needing some advice, it's been almost 2 months already, since my snake has last eaten. I've tried changing the mouse to a new one and it still doesn't work. What can I do to help her eat? She has never gone this long without eating a mouse. I'm really worried.

Have you called a veterinarian that specializes in reptiles and ask them for suggestions? Or the place you bought the snake from?
If you get a frozen chick and when your defrosting your rat or mouse have the chick defrosting with it. The chick will scent the rodent and the snake should be more receptive ;)
Hope this helps!
Check the temperature of the tank. If its slightly too chilly they won't eat also.
