Missing Screen Shots When I Close and Re-Open Premiere

Hey All, 


I use a lot of screen shots/capture for my videos. After I saved + closed my latest premiere project, when I returned to it, most of the screen shots were missing, and I wasn't able to find them to re-link them.


I assumed it was an issue with imac not saving screenshots/caching them somehere, I tried to account for this by taking new screen shots, and after taking each screen shot, dragging it directly into the project bin.


Unfortunately, after saving + closing + reopening the project, the titles of the screen shots are in the bin, but they are still listed as missing media, and I can't link them/find them anywhere else on my desktop/rest of mac.


Is there some sort of temporary/cache folder in Premiere that I need to change the settings for?


I've changed my screen shot settings to go to a non-desktop file for the future, but any advice for locating/restoring these is much appreciated. Thank you!
