If you still have the original files you were first editing with then you can relink the media. Here's an Adobe Help article that can guide you https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/relinking-media.html

I just lost my entire project timeline, gone. All the project bins containing all the imported files are still there but my entire master sequence is gone as well as 12 nested segments. Plus every single "auto-saved" file was also affected (9 of them over 2 days). What the heck just happened! and more importantly what can I do to prevent this from happening again. 2 full days of work gone that I can't bill out!

Get yourself a larger screen so you can properly see what you are doing.

FAQ: When to use "Save A Copy," or "Save As," or just "Save".

If they're in the same folders, it can link however many are in that folder at a time.

It's lost the data for the location of the orignal media.

 

So go to this clip in the Project file, it will be showing a thumb with a question mark for this clip. Right-click, locate media. Then navigate to the place you have that stored on the computer using that dialog.

 

One thing a lot of those new to Premiere don't understand ... "importing" a video or audio file into Premiere does not move or copy the file on disc, it only imports a link to the file's location on disk. Premiere works on metadata like that.
