I closed a document that would have been autosaved and checked "no" when asked if I wanted to save the document and now cannot find it. Is it hidden in autosave? How do I locate the file?

autosave deletes the temp file when you "gracefully" exit word.  Unless word crashed, there is nothing to find.

You may be able to find it with a file recover application like Undelete.

Don't install the application on the drive you intend to recover the file from as it may be overwritten.
