The 1920 US Census has a soundex name search, so if the name was
spelt differently you can search by soundex number. You can also
check the NYC Directories for 1919-1921 and if you find a listing,
search by address by finding the correct ED that address is included
in. It takes time, but is the best way to be sure they are not in
the US Census. If you used ancestry.com when this census first came
out it was not complete as I had found my grandfather years before
using the soundex card system, but I could not find him on ancestry.com
and the entry was clear and easy to read.

Yes, it is possible to find individuals who were enumerated in the
1920 US Census if you check the records at the National Archives or
have access to one of the commercial services that allow you to
search by individual names. I checked and did not find Bela Sacher
in the 1920 census. Perhaps he changed his name or wasn't at home
when the census-taker arrived. Contact me off-list with any details
you have and I'll see what I can find.
