It sounds like your site was deleted.  Site or web deletes do not go into the recycle bin.  If a site is deleted, it is gone for good and you would have to rely on your backups to bring it back.

You might want to consider checking out the Site Recycle Bin feature part of the SharePoint Governance stuff located on CodePlex (http://governance.codeplex.com/).  This will capture any site deletes if someone deletes them so they can be recovered.

CodePlex site recycle bin is after I restore it back from my backups right?

or will it tell me which ones got deleted and when?

Unless you have a backup of your current environment, that team site is most likely gone.  Site Recycle Bin is more for a go forward basis.  If a site is deleted, you can use it to recover it.

Moving forward, SharePoint 2010 SP1 introduced a built-in Site Recycle Bin:
