Which one sentence is correct to say? Please explain the situation where I can use below sentences.

a) Where you went, I have been looking for you.

b) Where you had gone, I have been looking for you.

c) Where did you go, I have been looking for you.

C is the closest to correct, thought it really should be two sentences:

Where did you go? I have been looking for you.

Since you are asking a direct question, you need an auxiliary verb and your question should be like this:

Where did you go? I have been looking for you.

You may also use:

Where were you? or Where have you been?

The first part of the first sentence (also the second one) is not a WH question and it somehow means:

The place you went, I have been looking for you.

If you are insisting on using where you went, you can use it like this:

I want to know where you went / have been.

In this sentence where is a subordinate conjunction.


By the way, I think the best time to say "I have been looking for you" is very soon after you find that person. Otherwise, since you are no longer looking for him/her, it would be better to use I was looking for you or even I had been looking for you (which is less common).
