help. Stray bunny, don't know what to do.

So a few days ago, I noticed a domestic black and white rabbit around my yard and a neighbors yard. Everytime I tried to call it, it would run under my neighbors porch. I left a cage with everything in it (ffood, water, and bedding) with a towel over it under some trees between our two yards so maybe it could use it as a home base. No such luck. il only spent one night under the porch and I didn't see it at all yesterday. Checked at dawn and dusk and nothing. The food that my neighbor left out was untouched (tthey left out carrots and a bowl of water) . This morning, about half an hour ago, I sighted it in a field adjacent to my yard. I took my own bunny out to see if I could lure it over, but it huge hhugged the treeline. I live in a woodsy area, so I didn't want to scare it off. It seems, however, that it is either following or has made friends with a wild rabbit around here. So now I am wondering, should I continue to try to catch it? If so, how? I have frends at the local shelter who may be able to let me borrow a humane cat trap, but I don't want to catch it if it can survive with its buddy and will be heartbroken and depressed if taken from it. You know? I know it's dangerous but maybe the wold one will help it stay safe? I don't know. I need help. If I were to catch it, I have a rabbit so I have all the supplies to take care of it. I just sdon't know if it needs rescuing, or even wants it. Please don't scold me or anything for asking this. I'm trying to make sure it's safe AND happy. Thank you in advance. Please help.
