With dogs you can be sure they'll come back but with cats, at times they just walk away never to return.. :( Been through that unfortunately
just keep an eye out , the cat will come home when it gets hungry , how long was the cat missing now ? , if there is snow you could maybe follow the cats tracks to where it is
oh , well i hope the cat comes back , does it have a collar with a tag and phone # on it ? , in case someone else took it in
check your neighbors houses out to see if they found a new pet lately , like your Cat
also check out any holes or basement windows you might have around your house that a cat could go in to keep warm

OMG, I'm so sorry.
