Comet and common goldfish have a tendency to jump out of the water at times if there is no cover or hood on the aquarium or fish bowl.  The cover or hood provides a number of functions including cutting down on evaporation, providing light for the aquarium, stopping the occasional water splashes from affecting your carpet  , and  preventing the fish from jumping out of the tank. 

Another possibility is that , if you have a power filter, it could have sucked the fish into the intake vent. I would check that also.

If you have a cat, make sure it is not able to get to the fish ( an aquarium hood would prevent this).

This is a strong one but I'm sorry to hear about your loss.  I just got 4 new comet goldfish last night
and this morning I found one of my little guys under a rock, trapped.  He had a bit of yellow on the
bottom of his belly.

I believe he might of got hurt when he was in the tank at walmart, poor guy.

Anyways again sorry for your loss.  Maybe he got under the little rocks but yes I do hope you find him.

Sounds like your fish went on a permanent vacation and his tank mates helped him!
Were all the fish about the same size or were there some much bigger than others?
In fish world, I'm sorry to say but the bigger fish do eat the smaller ones sometimes.
If you read the ingredients on the food you feed your fish...well goldfish are not particular of what kind or brand of fish they eat and probably the fresher the better.  Sad  Sorry for your loss.
