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.

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