If he has never been flown from another home (you've had him since a squab) he will return. There is always the possibility that he was taken by a raptor.

Sometimes pigeons go off with other pigeons.. temp to court etc n then bring friends back, or go off with them perm. He coulda got caught up some were in a garage temp etc.. or raptor coulda got.
if it gets back, or you get more, get eight six or a dozen, as pigeons safer n happier in a flock of those groups I've found.

If he is still alive I guarantee he will be back no matter how long it takes.

I sold a homer to a young pigeon fancier who pinioned both his wings and my homer literally walk home close to a mile away. If I had know that was what the fancier had in mind I would have never sold him the bird to begin with.

Check out my interview (you may have to suffer through a commercial if you are able to down load).

Ive heard of homers horribly injured in various ways.. lesser of having leg/legs n wing/wings injured n using one of to hobble n or drag self home. sometimes getting healed up or nesting, then getting home after weeks or months n even year or more from someone locking them down.
