Can’t Find the Ender Dragon Egg?

Today after I defeated the Ender Dragon, I broke the egg, but it didn’t teleport anywhere I could see.

I checked the entire 15 block horizontal and 7 block vertical space around the egg and didn’t see it.

Is it possible that the egg teleported in the air and hit the portal and broke?

That’s my only working theory unless there’s some one block air pocket underground near the portal.

I’d really rather not lose the egg, as I don’t have cheats enabled.
