Queen help

Missouri bee keeper here and I’ve come across an issue I haven’t yet had before. I run four hives and during inspection today I had a hive that was missing it’s queen. There were no eggs to be seen and no substantial brood or larvae.. my other hives were plum full of eggs and brood and I found the queens in each of those hives. There is a queen cell in the hive missing the queen but I’m curious if I should let that queen cell play out or go to one of my local guys and get a replacement queen. To be clear I’ve had to push my inspections back longer than I’d like because we’ve had nothing but rain for the past week and a half otherwise I may have caught this issue earlier. Please let me know what you guys recommend. Thanks
