I'm sorry that must be harsh.
We used to have two cats about 10 years ago; one of them ran away and never came back while the other one I found dead in our backyard. It's not easy and I hope you guys feel better soon. :c

Don't give up quite yet.
We have/had two brother cats (Tobey mostly white with some orange and Mikey orange with white belly,paws, and chest.)that we rescued. They love the outdoors and there was no way they'd let you keep them in. A few years ago when we were living with my grandmother, Tobey went missing. After about 2 weeks we had just about given up, then about a week later we came home one night after running errands and my grandma had stayed home when we got back she said "your orange kitty came back in", we thought she was talking about Mikey but sure enough Tobey comes marching into the kitchen.
Then last September(2012) we were moving and Mikey went missing, we moved about 20 mins away but we came back all the time to look and call for him, put posters up, put ads on CL, and nothing. Then 6 months later (end of march 2013, just 2 days after we got phoebe) we got call that a lady thought we had our cat (we were skeptical that it was him cause over the months we gotta ton of calls about orange cats and would drive out to see them but it wasn't them and then the people that were taking care of the cat would try to convince us to take them anyways
) So we drove out there, older lady said a friend had told her about the poster and thought is was him so she gave us a call. Just as we headed down the hall to her bedroom were he was sleeping, he let out meow and we knew it was him before even seeing him. I cried so hard. I had just recently convinced myself he was dead because he's so friendly somebody would of taken him and surely noticed the fillers(VERY small town and fillers were in the brand new and very popular Stewart's(Like a 7-11 but nicer)) The lady said he had only shown up a week before so we have no idea where he was the whole time and not to mention only her house was literally a 1/4 mile up the road from where we use to live. We figured he must have been staying in some nearby barns or an abandon garage we had caught him lurking around before. His ears to the day are a little black on the tips so I guess he must have had a little frost bite on them at some point.
Sorry for the Long post. Just wanted to mention that miracles do happen and not to give up hope.
If he is a frequent indoor/outdoor cat like I think you mentioned in your other post? He knows his way around and knows how to live out there more than a strictly indoor cat would. Good Luck in finding him but if you don't I'm sorry for your loss

Thanks, yeah my cats are clever wee sods. Funny thing was 2 days earlier I decided to update their collars to elasticated ones, put tags on them with my number, just in case they got hit on the highway, someone would notify me. The other factor is they all had bells on them... they all are great hunters, and while I believe they should be able to hunt as they would naturally, digger decided eating their kill they bought home was a good idea. I didnt want ti risk him getting sick, and coming outside to find him popping a mouse open with a sickening sound - and all the baby birds they had been bringing home, I thought I best give them a fighting chance... we have many endangered native birds where I live.. I would never forgive myself if they got one of those - plus they were all hunting for sport - they would never eat their prey, just bring it home to gloat.
Anyway, Scrat was the only one who wouldnt hunt. He also only eats cat kibble and mixed vegetables. He wont touch and canned cat foods, dogrolls, beef, lamb etc. Only meat I could find he would eat is cooked chicken, he wont touch it raw, and as it is very expensive to buy here he wouldnt get it often, and as a result he was quite skinny.
I just dont think he could survive this long out there by himself, and if he did decide to hunt I stuffed that up for him by putting a collar with a bell on him
Anyway sorry for the badly written post, I guess it has hit me that he most likely isnt coming back, and ive had a tearful day to say the least, im overly sensitive qhen it comes to my furbabies.
