Locksmith is your Search the List category for this - obviously, since Saturday, you are looking for a traveling locksmith with 24 hour service - likely to run you about $100 or so I would think, in your area.

Hopefully you have your photo drivers license/ID card with you for ID, otherwise a quality locksmith will not unlock a door for someone without police presence for them to positively ID the person once the person can get inside with the police to fetch their ID and prove they belong there. If your current address is not on the ID or you are staying at someone else's house, can be even more difficult to prove you belong there.

Suggestion - after you are back in, get a hideout key and buy a couple dollar hideout key holder or use an old screw-thread pill bottle (plastic preferable) to hide somewhere you can get to it but NOT where people will look around the doors - put in the bottom of an dry (so it does not freeze solid on you) unused planter/pot is a good place (so you have to dump it out to gewt the key), under part of a woodpile, under a blending-in cobble or boulder in amongst many other similar rocks, inside some container of something else in shed or storage unit outside (obviously one that is unlocked or has combination lock you will remember combo to). Somewhere it takes some digging around to find and not anywhere quick to grab - and if buried under gravel or such be sure it is not where someone will scuff the gravel and uncover it sometime, and in a dry area so it does not get wet and corrode or get frozen into the ground.
