@Shikakope was it deleted or archived? if it was simply archived, which is most common, you can retrieve it by going to "Show Menu" in the top right corner of your board, then selecting the "More" option, then "Archived items". You should see it in that list, or you can search for it in the search bar, and then click "Send to board". 

If it was actually deleted (you have to archive a card first and THEN delete it, so it's a two step process to be sure you actually want to delete it), it is unfortunately gone. If you're worried about this happening regularly, you might want to get Backups for Trello power-up, which would let you "rewind" your board back to a previous state, even if someone does actually delete a card, although I know that probably doesn't help this time.

This was very helpful. Turns out the card was archived, not deleted.

I appreciate the prompt support.

@Shikakope woohoo! glad to hear that. yeah Trello intentionally makes it hard to "delete" things. Even boards - they're closed first, and then you have to take a second step to actually delete them.
