I have found that when someone says a folder has been deleted, it has really been dragged and dropped by an errant Mouse.  Did you do a search for missing folder?
Setting up auditing to determine who deleted a file is very obnoxious, but can be accomplished if you want that.
See this doc for starters:

Do you have Shadow Copy running on that Share?  It may tell you when it was deleted.

You can't--unless you have some kind of auditing enabled.

Windows has built-in auditing: http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Auditing_Windows_Server_2008_File_and_Folder_Access

However, it's not the most user-friendly solution.  If you want more reliable auditing, some third party programs will also email you daily reports and updates based on your settings:
