Records do not delete themselves, they are deleted only as the result of a query (through software or by an operator), or by deleting them manually through the database manager interface.

Most likely someone has entered a query that did not limit the scope of their action enough.

You may want to set up a schedule of nightly backups, so that you do have backups of your database. Backups are so very important, as you have unfortunately found out the hard way.

If you are using a web interface to connect to the database someone could have used a SQL injection to remove the records. To overcome this you would need to rewrite all your SQL querries to run at the server and not be passed via the address bar of the remote browser.
