No, I didn't use any mods.

Summary: When a Quest is given and the User sends a Companion to deal with it, and the Quest giver dies before completion, the Companion (alongside any sent troops) do not return. I have had this happen twice in this run.
How to Reproduce: Find a Quest giver on the brink of death and then send a companion to deal with their issue. When they die, note how the companion (and any sent troops) doesn't return and has to be dismissed from service

It shouldn't be this way, but I think you can get him back by simply assigning him as governor of a town or castle. I was able to get my companion back after he was caught by an enemy party. I couldn't find him in any of the towns that the encyclopedia said he was last seen at. I managed to get him back with all of his gear intact, because I believe companions loser their gear if you dismiss them.

What happens if you try to set him as governor or creates a party with him? Even if this works, it´s only a workaround to keep your companion though.
