sometime / someday - which is more distant?


Senior Member
Dear all,

A mother said to her son, who had lost his yo-yo in the house, "don't worry. You'll find it sometime / someday."

I made up the sentence. I would like to know which of sometime or someday sounds more distant from now.
I would appreciate any comments.

    "One day" sounds more natural to me, to express the idea of a day in the indefinite future, That may well be BE usage, though.
