If you can't find your pills at all, you should be able to get another pack either by contacting your pharmacy directly or asking your doctor to authorize a sooner-than-normal refill. If you can get a pack, say, tomorrow, then just follow the instructions in the pack insert for "if you miss a pill" and go from there.

If you can't get more pills for several days, then start your pack when you get it, but it'll be a good idea to just back up with condoms if you're having sex that poses a pregnancy risk for the length of the pack to make sure you'll fully protected.
