That missing cat5 cable may be run to the area behind the TV/Stereo. It was common practice to have a phone jack there.
Look for a blank wall plate in the garage, or in the basement.
2 cat5 cables may have been run to the home office location - fax + multiple phone lines may have been a consideration.
Good idea about the alarm. If you don't have an alarm, look for a blank wall plate in the master bedroom closet, a popular alarm panel location.
Extra cat5 may be run to a thermostat, for remote operation.
The local home inspector may have your house plans on file, which could possibly include the phone drop locations.
