"Contacts" icon missing on iPhone X

The "Contacts" icon is missing on a new iPhone X.

Currently the user has to search for "Contacts" since the contacts icon isn't displayed anywhere on the iPhone X screen.

What needs to be done so that the "Contacts" icon will display on the iPhone X screen?

The Contacts folder cannot be deleted. Check other folders and/or home screen pages and see if you can locate it. If not, you can go to Settings, General, Reset, Reset Home Screen Layout and that should bring it back.

I have already checked everywhere and haven't been able to find the Contacts folder.

I then performed the "Reset Home Screen Layout" exactly as described and this hasn't put the Contacts folder back on the Home screen.

what else needs to be done so the Contacts icon will display on the Home screen?

Found this icon under the "Extras" folder and dragged it back onto the home screen.

That is what Scott recommended in #a42389076

"Check other folders and/or home screen page"

Which is exactly what I suggested.  Look in other folders.  It had to be somewhere as it's impossible to delete the Contacts icon.

You said you looked "everywhere" but then found  it in the "Extras" folder.  Again...my suggestion exactly.
