I've been using iCloud Notes for many important pieces of information for years. Now, most, but not all, of my notes are gone! They just are not there. Not on my iDevice and not there thru the browser app!! Nor are they in the "Recently Deleted" folder! They are just gone! WTH! I first noticed this probably a couple weeks ago. Did Apple have a severe data loss event? Is it only my account? Is there someone to contact at Apple about this? I'm pissed! I will never trust iCloud again!

All my iCloud notes are still there. You may want to contact Apple.

You may not trust iCloud again but don't trust Google, Dropbox, Box, Amazon or Microsoft either. Keep offline backups just in case.

Do you regularly back up your phone/data? If so, you can do a restore. It's worked for many people before (according to a quick Google search).

Not that it helps you but just looked to be sure and have all of my notes. I would contact Apple and ask.
