Can you help me find my mom's cat?

My mom is out of town for a couple of weeks and she asked me to take her cat to my house, which is about an hour away from hers. The cat moved in here a week ago with no real problems. Today, she went missing, and I would really like to find her. Can you help me?

About the cat: she is a Siamese cat who is pretty friendly, about two years old. She knows me and gets along with both me and my girlfriend who lives here. She is indoor only, I do not know if she has ever been outside but I doubt it. She doesn't try to dart out when you open the door. . . I do not know how she got outside, she has been missing now for about six hours.
I live in a small city, but I live in a very 'rural' part of that city. I live on eleven acres of wooded land, with significant acres of woods on adjoining plots. In one direction I have light suburban style neighbors. Other people's cats roam the neighborhood and seem to have a pretty easy time of it. Light traffic.
I am worried that since she has been here such a short time she will range too far and not find her way back. Night has fallen now, we have been out all evening looking for her with no luck whatsoever.
I put out her food and some sardines on both my front and back porch. I put an old shirt of mine in a box, and now I've moved her litter box out. Is there anything else I can do?
What if she doesn't come back by tomorrow, what are the next steps I take?
