 How long does it take a millipede to molt?

I have a baby African Black millipede and I haven’t seen him in about five days. When I first got him, I saw him every night. I know he had been eating, but now I don’t see him and he has stopped eating the food, although he may be eating the coconut fiber that I use as substrate. It is always about 73 degrees in the tank and at about 80% humidity. I am starting to think he may be molting and I want to know how long it takes. My last millipede was fully grown when I got her and she only lived about a year, so she never molted with me.
