Open his mailbox with another computer and confirm they aren't in his Contacts folder.  If they are, it's a view in his Outlook.

If they aren't there, search his whole mailbox for them.  They were either moved, or removed/deleted.  If not found, check the deleted items folder, and also the Recovery Deleted Items tool found on the Tools menu when the Deleted Items folder is highlighted.

Do your backups include mailbox level backups?  If so, it should be easy to restore his missing contacts.
