to get clarification, its the 2 contacts that you saved to Gmail that you cannot find?

have you logged into your gmail account (from a PC) to see if they ever sync'd there?

go the below mentioned link and check whether your contacts are there or not.

http://www.google.com/contacts

If they were added to Google contacts from mobile, then they should be present at above link.
