Every Catholic who questions the teachings of the Catholic Church and chooses to believe differently has left the Catholic Church for Protestantism. We hear about people like that all the time.

In response to the original post, I find it amazing how many people examine the writings of St. Polycarp, St. Clement, St. Ignatius, St. Irenaeus, and St. Justin Martyr, and are later drawn to the Catholic Church. Actually, I don’t find that amazing, but rather how often it happens.

I have a friend who is very active in his local Catholic parrish, attends mass every Sunday, is attending to his children's spiritual education. When we discuss religion, I end up (half) joking that he's more of a Lutheran than I am.

In my experience, the three former Catholics I knew became agnostic or atheist in their beliefs.
