How do I find my follower if and when they leave me?

When I was asked to get a knife from some crazy witch to save a tree I lost my follower. There was no body, she didn’t die, and my friend said the same thing happened to her. So, is this a glitch? Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a way to fix it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried fast-travelling back to your house, and checking there? – Gauzy Nov 27 '11 at 3:09

Just fast-travel to any place and, if your follower didn't respawn near you there are three possible Issues:

  1. Your follower died (sorry it's bad news)
  2. It's a bug (nice one)
  3. You told him/her to wait and forgot where or can't return to where you told them to wait (bad loop-hole)

Well I've fast traveled and gone back and looked for a body, so I think I found a bug. thanks – KnotHeather Nov 27 '11 at 23:50
Note: if you tell your follower to wait and don't get back to them, they will eventually (after a few days) return to their "home" (what that is depends on the follower). – Joachim Sauer Nov 28 '11 at 8:25
...and you will get a message about how they got tired of waiting. – Ben Jackson Dec 5 '11 at 0:11
@JoachimSauer are you sure about that? I told Lydia to wait in Markarth, forgot about that, did some quests without her and returned after about 6 or 7 days when I noticed she's gone, and she was still there. – Shadow Wizard Dec 28 '11 at 9:54

This actually happened to me. I was sure she was dead, then I bought a house and a day after decorating it I walked in and she was sitting at the table in my bedroom. So, she may turn up!

until you haven't any house, your follower can be fount in first place you meet him/her. (specially Lydia can be found in The Jarl's palace, Dragonsreach) – Rev Nov 28 '11 at 12:25
Lydia is the one I lost, and she didn't go home. I got her with the house and I had her from then on. Now she is gone, so I think it is a bug. My friend had the same thing happen 2 days before it happened to me. – KnotHeather Nov 29 '11 at 1:31
