Don't worry. My 18 crabs molt, come up for 2 days then go down for weeks. They love to burrow thru the sand. They are ok. Don't worry. They will get hungry and thirsty, so make sure there are foods and waters!

AussieJjdude I know because I saw him up a few nights ago. He has dug up and ate a crab before, if that helps.
