3 way switch without traveler wire

I want to add a switch to an existing light. There is no wire for a standard 3 way switch. My question is, it seems like using a zwave there should be something that would work since the switches can communicate with each other.

The stuff I've seen though all seems to require that extra wire for 3 way switches..

I already have other zwave stuff in my house.

Sorry about the delay in answering. I've been picking my brain for a solution to this ...

Leviton makes a remote switch that can be programmed to work with specific receivers. Not cheap, but probably cheaper than cutting walls, paying an electrician to run wires, and repairing the walls.
