    Turn yourself in at the next opportunity. A warrant for your arrest has (probably) already been issued. Don't make your situation worse by avoiding the court process.

    You will need to contact your lawyer and have your lawyer get another court date set or go to the court and turn yourself in and ask for another court date. Otherwise, a failure to appear warrant will be issued for your arrest and it is just a matter of time before you are picked up and arrested. Then, you will wait 30 days before you have a new court date.
