Why have I not heard back?

How much more effort do I put in before giving up (relationship advice)?

A little background:
A few weeks ago, a friend from a few years ago who I had fallen out of touch with messaged me over Facebook about getting together. I responded and said that I would message back when I found a good time. Last Thursday I sent a message saying we should get together on the following Monday. Friend got back to me and said that they thought they might be busy that day, but that they'd contact me when they found out.
Fast forward to Tuesday. I hadn't heard back, so we didn't get together on Monday (obviously). I sent Friend another message saying I was available Friday. I still haven't heard back, and I'm starting to wonder what's going on.
If this was somebody who I'd called up and who wasn't returning my calls, I'd chalk it up to them not being interested in getting together, but I was the one that was initially contacted. I also know that this friend hasn't been in any sort of accident (they've updated their facebook since I've messaged them). This is somebody who I really liked and felt a real connection with. What else can I do? How much more effort do I put into contacting them?
