Bat in the house

A bat flew into our house on Friday night and we have not been able to locate it to remove it. Any suggestions on how to find it short of hiring an exterminator? No small children in the house but a small dog. Big house - all bedroom doors were open. We believe it is somewhere on the second floor. I have read many conflicting ideas and just want to be sure it is safe for us to be here if we can't find this bat.
