    Were you running the time machine backups? You may have it in the time capsule

    Did you look in Recent Items just in case it's there?

    Hope you find it!

    if you saved it click file --> open recent
    your file should be in there.

    did a crash happen?
    is it minimized somewhere? if so click window and see if it's still open. (don't be embarrassed if that's the case, i do that all the time)

    if it's not open then you closed the file and it would have asked you to save before hand.

    did you save it at any point?

    Did you save it in iCloud perhaps without realizing it? Login to and open Pages there and see if it is there.
