Replacing a plank of laminate

I did a large room in laminate. Dogs can't scratch it, so I am a fan. I put it down 3 years ago. A corner of a plank, don't know how, came up. Any suggestions on how to fix? I don't know if you can do a plank without ripping up the entire floor. I was thinking of putting a clear epoxy down to just fill in the gap. It isn't the full depth of the plank, only about half.

Can not just replace one in the middle of the floor.
Got to start at the outside and remove until you get to the defective piece.
Post a picture may help figure out why it failed.
Most common issues would be moisture, and installing the floor without the needed expansion gaps on the outsides.

I can get a picture later on today. I wouldn't really be worried about moisture issues because this is the only plank that has any problems. I think the locking didn't go in right and just lifted one day. We have been doing a lot of reno on my small house and it probably just had enough and popped up. The rest of the floor is doing just fine.

Would you think the epoxy, just to create a flat surface is a decent idea?
