    Well, certainly give Spotlight a shot at finding it, but it does sound like perhaps you deleted it by mistake. There are file salvage tools for OS X but they work best when you've noticed right away and haven't written any other data to the disk.

    If nothing else your predicament does highlight why Time Machine is such a great tool.
