Fortunately I have found the karma 1 km away in a garden.
I have sent it to GoPro and they said that was my fault.
You can try to look at the remote in last known location to see where was last time tracked.

If the drone started to drift, it sounds like you did not have a solid GPS lock or you were flying in manual/expert mode which doesn't require GPS lock. Flying without GPS in manual/expert mode would also result in the drone drifting. Without GPS assist the drone is operates more like a balloon in the wind, it will go whichever way the wind is blowing. Also if you're new to the drone, it's possible that there was an input errors. It's also advisable to set up a GeoFence before you fly, that way if there are any errors, the drone will be confined by the GeoFence and will stay in a predesignated area. You can also slow down the drone speed in the settings, that way if this happens again, you'll have more success following it.
As for recovering the drone, without a flight log to view, your best bet would be to work out how much flying time you had left on your battery, what the speed of the drone flight was and use those to get a max flight distance. Then just keep walking in that direction hoping to spot it. You can also put up a few flyers or a "lost" ad on any notice boards in the area. If someone has found it, they can check the registration number you were required to put on the drone and track you down via the UAS section of the FAA website.
