Is there a way to find a missing Premiere Pro project from an AE project?

I recently tried to open a Premiere Project that I worked on a few months ago, but couldn't find the project. I have all the project files and AE project in my usual locations, but this Premiere Project file is missing. There were a lot of dynamically linked AE compositions in my Premiere project. By opening the AE project, is there a way to tell which Premiere project the comps are linked to? I'm assuming I accidentally saved the Premiere project under a different name and/or in the wrong folder, since none of the auto saves are showing up and a search isn't showing anything with that name.

If it's missing, AE doesn't know where it is, so obviously it can't TELL you where it is. It will tell you the name of the project, and you can try to search that in File Explorer/Finder and potentially locate the file that way,

Nothing is missing in the AE project, I just wanted to know whether or not AE could tell me which projects the comps are linked to, like Premiere Pro can.

In the project panel you must have the sequences offline, open the panel horizontally to show more columns, among those columns there is one called File Path, at the end of the directory you should be able to see the name of the project .prproj of Premiere Pro. I hope that helps you at least search for it with its name.

Hm no that doesn't seem to work, the file paths are empty since they're compositions.
