Launchpad - Missing Apps - help?

Ok so I updated last night but appear to be missing a few Apps from Launchpad in Mountain Lion, that were there in Lion.

I have checked and confirmed the Apps are still in my Application folder, and still launch (World of Warcraft, for example), but they're not in Launchpad.

Is it possible to re-index Launchpad or add apps back into Launchpad?

Thanks

Anyone able to help?

Lion had a tweak to re-index Launchpad but it's different in ML.

'Other'

That did it for me, but the 'Utilities' folder in LaunchPad is now called 'Other'.
