Screw dropped INSIDE the airbox? If so, nope. Don't run the engine, don't let it swallow the screw.

When the screw dropped somewhere between bodywork and engine, then, I would not worry about it. Get a replacement screw at some point and ride care free.

You may get lucky and find the rear screw when it punctures your rear tire if it comes out of it's hiding spot and you run over it. :D;) Otherwise, your airbox just isn't sealed fully and it shouldn't hurt anything.

Try to find/borrow a boroscope and look for the screw. They're super cheap if you buy one online.
