When Locating Missing Files on an Hard drive Lightroom deletes the photos and edits within LR

Hello,

I moved folders with edited photos in them to a harddrive, then needed to access some of the photos in LR to edit again. When I clicked on "Find Missing Files" and matched the first photo to the first photo (also clicked "Find Nearby Photos) it erased the photos in LR. The folder name is still there, it says "0" for photo number. 

 

I have a suspicion this is because I didn't move them back to their original location on my laptop, is that the issue? Is there any way to get the files to show up again? I am not sure if the catalogue was backed up with these photos on it. And I'm not sure how to restore the catalogue if that is the fix.
