Sim dissappearing in secret lab (strangerville)

★★★★ Newbie

So my sim is doing the Strangerville location aspiration and has gotten to the point where he has collected the spores, talked to the people around town, and returned to the lab to use the chemical analyzer. The problem is whenever he goes to the basement and leaves the first room where the stairs are, he disappears. I know he is there because I can click to center on him and it moves to where I told him to go. Also, all the rooms in the lab are empty. There is no equipment anywhere in the basement. I have tried removing all mods and it makes no difference.

Go to the City map. On the right top find Family Management Panel.
Move your sim to another lot using this panel.
Then check if he appeared there.
If yes move him back to his house.
If you will not find him in Family Management Panel it means he met Mother Plant and he was killed

The sim is actually still there. I can click the button to center on him and it goes to where he is supposed to be or I can also have him walk back out of the basement and he reappears. The problem seems to be that nothing shows up in the basement, no sims or equipment.

Have you moved him to another lot as I asked? And if not - why did not you do it?

Yes, I tried that and it didn't work. I also tried using another sim and the same issue occurred.

Did not you find him in the Family Management panel? Did he not appear in this family after moving him to this family?

I tried that but it didn't work. Here's a better way to describe my issue. He becomes invisible once he goes into any room in the basement other than the one with the stairs. He is still there, but I can't see him. I can tell him to walk back to the stair room and he reappears. It's not just the sim though, there is nothing in the basement except for empty rooms. The first screenshot I centered on him after he walked into a basement room and the second screenshot just shows how the basement is empty.
