Suddenly a users tasks are gone (everything else is still there) I've checked the views and made sure they were not hidden. Any suggestions.

Is the user synching with any other devices?
They didn't go add more than one category to their tasks did they?  This is a flaw, if you assign more than one category they disappear, see this link if that's the case: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1053657

YOu might try setting the user up on another system and see if the tasks appear, if so, it' s an outlook problem and solvable.
