Try hanging some of your family's unwashed clothes (sweaters, t-shirts etc) and your pet's own unwashed bedding on your washing line. The theory is that, as cats and dogs have an enhanced sense of smell compared to us, the scent will carry on the air and your pet may pick up on this and can use it as a marker to sniff their way home.
If all else fails then this may be worth a try.
