If the sole witness did not receive a subpoena by hand and it was left at the door, what will happen if she doesn't show up on the court date?

Question Details: I received information from the court clerk that the only witness subpoenaed to testify against me was not served in person; the subpoena was left at the door of her residence. She has since relocated and no longer lives there. If she doesn't show up on the court date, how will my case go forward with no witness?
