Have you enabled Message Tracking "if not do so" to find if the messages really were in the inbox in the first place.

Is this happening only in the Outlook client? Try looking to see if there are any filters applied. Outlook will tell you if there are or not. It tells you in the information bar at the bottom of the app. It will say filter applied or something to that effect or you could just look in the filters section.

Has the view been changed?

When things like this happen, it is usually because the user has configured it to "show only unread messages"

You can also reset views by closing outlook, and then starting it by going Start > run > outlook /cleanviews
