I thought if this thread this afternoon when my oldest wanted sandpaper. I gave exact directions to the shelving in the garage. Couldn’t find it. I went out and there, on the shelf at their eye level, was the sand paper!

Sounds normal to me.

It is pretty normal.  I think too that young kids probably go to their room to get something that is in plain sight but then something else catches their eye so they switch to that instead.

I’ve got 7 year old son, a 16 year old step-son and a husband and they can never find anything.  My step-son after claiming to have looked everywhere for something has said to me “I didn’t just have a boy look.”  I went to his room and there it was on the floor just inside the door way.

Edited to add - I didn’t notice that this topic is over a week old.  Sorry.

Guess it depends if he's really trying to look and not seeing, or just bad at looking. My dd (4yo) is terrible at looking for things, she just doesn't bother to look properly, swivels her head around and goes "I can't see it" 🙄 lol or walks right over missing item. Her 2yo brother on the other hand, already knows how to actively look and you know, move things lol. So I think it can be a thing without vision issues, but of course, could be vision too, worth checking I'm sure
