Lost my Spark, but have I searched in the right place?

I've managed to mess things up again...

I was flying towards a small hill with a steady incline and good visibility.
For some inexplicable reason, I decided to press the 'Return to Home' button to bring the drone back, and that's when the chaos started:
The drone wanted to land right there and then! I tried to abort the landing, but I was bombarded with messages and warnings, and to top it off, the Wi-Fi signal disappeared!
Wiser from previous experiences, I took a screenshot of where the drone was on the map in the DJI GO4 app, and that turned out to be a lifesaver. 'Find My Drone' wasn't working, and it seems that the GPS coordinates are missing, making it impossible for me to check the flight log with the map.In the app,
I had a clear idea of where the drone was located, so I hoped it would still be in that area. There was a lot of underbrush and grass, but I had a UV flashlight that makes my Spark shine like, well..., a spark in the dark! :D . I couldn't find it despite searching in both daylight and darkness.

Are any of you experts able to shed more light on where the drone might have gone?

I agree with SparkFan. Looking at the screenshots you attached with all the trees look in the branches at the last known location. If I'm not mistaken, there are two options on signal loss, RTH and land. Good luck!
If your sparky does not listen to you- press Pause. Regain your thoughts and react from there. I suppose it’s to late for this advice now.
