My tortoise went missing for a week (he'd somehow escaped to the neighbours garden the little devil) and when we found him I noticed his shell was cracked abit underneath and there's now a little break in his under shell what could have caused this and what do I do?!

Do you have pics? Do you mean a chip or an actual crack? Sorry, need to have more info in order to be able to help. If the shell is actually broken, you may need to see a vet but most minor damage can be healed with the help of some videne/povidone iodine.
