Sounds almost like the user has either a PST he was storing the email in this would be found locally on his machine.
Another thing you can check is under view and make sure the view isnt hiding the emails.

If neither of those is an option, then it must be that someone went through and deleted them

Have you tried going back to an earlier backup, maybe something in Late march? even if you cant get all of it you could still get some
