2010 10K AT oil pan

Good evening. I need some maintenance help with my current situation. We have a gentleman at work who used an oil siphon system to drain the oil from our 10K Cat forklift through the dip stick. When removing the siphon tube, the plastic broke and is stuck in the oil pan. We had the rest of the oil drained. We used the bore scope, and couldn't find it, or feel for it through the drain plug on both sides. We couldn't see it through the dip stick either. Any other recommendations besides removing the oil pan. If we have to remove the oil pan, how much work is involved? The bolts look easy to remove. But the sump part of the pan will be a problem due to the rear axle. Thank you for your time.
