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.
