get a trash can or bucket it wont be able to jump out of. Get a small ladder or ramp leading up to the rim and some tasty smelling food to go inside. he'll go in for the food and not be able to get back out. worked with my hamster, givin rats are smarter, but its worth a try

Umm Maybe leave out some food and a sticky trap or something. Not sure if catching it alive is a priority. not really too versed in this department. Also I think this is the wrong forum for this thread maybe a mod can move it.
You can get live traps from Home Depot or Lowes or other similar hardware stores. They're easy to set up, and worked for me every time I had a rodent escape. I got two and set one up at each end of the room the rodent was in, one near each doorway he might have used to move into another part of the house. Anyhow...two was plenty to catch them every time, although it was almost always an overnight endeavor. Once you buy the traps (they're not expensive, but obviously more than a little wooden snap-trap) you'll be very glad you have them on hand in case it happens again.
