Default Missing settings apk. HELP!

I use a Samsung Galaxy S3 running the latest nightly build of Cyanogenmod 11. Somehow or another, the settings app disappeared. It's not in the app drawer, when I try to access the app using the quick settings panel, nothing happens. And when I try to drag an app from the home screen to the "App Info" tab I get a pop-up notification saying "application is not installed". I've tried updating my phone but it didn't work and all of my back-ups are not working either! I'm thinking it may be the Trebuchet launcher that comes with CM 11 hiding the app shortcut. I've went into the file manager and did some digging and I did find some files related to the app, but what worries me is that I couldn't find the .apk file. Help would be greatly appreciated! I'm attaching some screenshots for reference.

that's easy just get the Setting APK from any AOSP/CM11 rom for your S3 and use Root Browser to put it into System/Priv-App set permissions to 0644/rw-r--r-- then reboot your phone and you should have it but preferably use the Settings Apk that is made for your rom

Do I find the ROM for my S3 that contains the app on the internet? If so, do you think you could link me to a website? I'm not having much luck here. I've been searching for hours and I still have no luck.

I'm assuming that the model number is SPH-L710, since it's not one of the international models. My service provider is Sprint. And I am currently running the very latest CM 11 build. I can't give a specific name because that's something the CM Updater could tell me. But that's only accessible through the settings app or if an update notification pops up in the notification shade.
