Upon a call of either house, if a quorum of members is not present, or a member is absent, the members present may direct the sergeant at arms or, if there is no sergeant at arms of such house, any other person to compel the attendance of absentees. If, on a call of either house, the members present refuse to excuse an absentee, he shall not be entitled to compensation during his absence and shall be liable for expenses incurred in procuring his attendance, which shall be deducted from his salary.

No word that I can find on abandonment of office or extradition of members. I would say though, since the ORC is silent, that if the office is vacant for a month without official leave, that the governor (or the legislature, if a quorum could be raised) should be able to declare the office vacant and schedule a special election. That’s what I’d do… and then let the missing legislators explain when they re-run for their offices (as you know they would) why they’ve wasted mililons of dollars on an election.
