First I would try a flash light if you have a straight pipe under the toilet.
By now, you may have used the toilet a few times and the object probably has moved.

If it was me, I would try to get it out.
When you get home, drain the tank and flush it well....very well.

For about $15 you can get a USB endoscope camera (camera on the end of a cable).

Put it on a stick, and go looking around (it has LED's on the end for illumination). If you don't see it, it likely slipped out while draining.

Here you go...$12
USB Endoscope Camera

There is no way anyone can resist this thread title
Regards,

Dan

Probably because it is illegal in many areas and the person doing it is liable for some serious fines. Please note: I am not making a judgment call here, I am just saying that it is preferable to dump into the toilet if you have extra room in your black tank that will hold the additional grey water allowing you to get to a dump station and dump it ALL in a legal manner! That way you avoid any possibility of fines!

Because the next camper may have a tent, or they may kids that will get in your mess. If you would have any consideration for others, you would keep your filth off the ground.
