I signed a non-compete in my employment agreement in 2003, but it isn't in my personnel file. Can I break that agreement knowing this signed document no longer exists?

I am currently looking for employment in the industry I've been employed in for the last 12 years. I originally signed an employment agreement that should have had the non-compete language in it, but I looked in my personnel file, and it isn't in the file. I would like to stay in my industry since it's all I focused on for the last 12 years, but don't want to receive a cease and desist order. I know it isn't ethical, but is it legal to go work for one of our clients/competitor?
