( English expert )

 

  The expression is "Anybody see Lila ? " Perhaps that violates the " rule ", but that is the way it is.  At any rate, that is short for " Does anybody see Lila ", which is a variation of " Has anybody seen Lila ? " ( I sure hope they find Lila soon. )

:

It's an elliptical sentence that has lost the auxiliary verb, so

' sees ' would sound rather strange.
