Maybe Iím remember the layout wrong, but is that wall area on the side of the coat closet/converter CB panel. Wonder if you could get in there by pulling the converter or the coat closet floor. Or go in from the basement removing that wall which is easy.

Maybe cut some wall in an area thatís not visible. This is if you canít fish it out somehow.

Possibly a strong magnet tied to a string?

control panel down the wall

Removed CO 2 alarm next to breaker panel. I found an 1inch an a1/4 hole.
Found a 3/8 inch black cable only black cable I could see. Used cutoff coat hanger with small hook to pull cable out of hole. There is a lot of slack both ways pull until you get the connector end. Lowered string with 1/2 inch socket tied to it. I have learned a lesson pull 2 feet of cable out of the and let it hang
and you won't have this problem.

Old cheap cloths hanger you get from the dry cleaner. Cut it apart, and make a hook on one end, and bend over the other end to use as a handle so you can control its direction.

Slip it down and go fishing!

Endoscope camera with the hook attachment. They sell on Amazon cheap now. Handy to have around.

Been there for the exact same reason. Dropped my cable the exact same way. My solution was to go in the coat closet and remove the brace that the fold up shelf sets on. Then I took a box cutter and cut the luan plywood behind that brace. Took that section out, fished the wire back to where it belonged and screwed it all back together. The cut canít be seen.
While I had the pad off the wall I added blocking (using glue) to have something more substantial to screw the pad frame to.
