Our cat made it's way in to the heating duct in our apartment building in Brooklyn, and now she's missing. Help! What do we do?

We can't be the only ones this has happened to. I've had a contractor to the apartment to start disassembling the ducts in the basement, but we have neither been able to find nor hear the cat. We did find the spot where she landed, and she wasn't there - so she walked away from the fall. (We live on the top floor of a brownstone in Brooklyn - it's a 4-story fall). But I don't know if she was injured in the fall and is no longer mobile, or if she's just hiding somewhere, terrified.
I've been to the local firehouse, but they can't help without destroying the heater. I'm on hold with Animal Care and Control now. Can anyone advise?
