In addition, you can also try looking in these panels for clues:

  • History
  • Paths (you are on the Pen tool)
  • Channels

Show screen shots of each if you don't know what you are seeing.

The image could have been pushed offscreen. Try Ctrl 0 or View > Fit on Screen, and see if it returns. You might not be looking at the canvas, but the dark area that surrounds the canvas, sometimes referred to as the "pasteboard".
