Outlook 2010 Address book is gone

One of my clients has lost their 2010 outlook address book.
She said it was there yesterday and yes it is gone today.
Any ideas as to how to retrieve ?

wildm4n--Run a Search for *.pst files.  The Contact List will be one of them if it is still where it should be.
Otherwise look in the Recycle Bin.
And if still no luck, use a program such as Recuva to try to recover (undelete) the file.

Note you cannot read a .pst address book until you put it back to its normal location.

wildm4n--I understand that you did not find any .pst files and that using Recuva did not help.
