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.

  • Fast travel to any place and there is a chance your follower might spawn out of nowhere like your Pets (horse or dog)

  • See if you have left any mission incomplete after starting it. Some missions tend to come with followers and you may need to get rid of that follower before trying to add another.
