The hissing sound is too quiet for you to accurately get a sense of where it might be coming from. Instead, you follow a hunch, walking over to the far bank of lockers where you see the wire coming out of the locker.

However, sitting on the top shelf is something you very much recognize. Its a walkie-talkie, and it seems to be the source of the hissing.
