What Dr X said, + kids (toddlers) or animals (shiny kitty play toy) could have grabbed it too.
Ask me how I know !
My solution: keys stay on caribiner, and either in ignition, in pocket or on high mounted hook in entry room.
Most USA dealers can order a Valet key for 45 usd.
I suspect you're perhaps overseas so your local dealer policy may vary.
Best wishes for locating them !
