Video clips arranged in Timeline vanished! Now my Timeline is empty.

I'm working on assembling a video, and was about 1/3 the way done, but I clicked into Quicktime and when I went back to Premiere, my video arrangement had vanished!
The timeline window is visible, but it says my Timeline is empty. 😩😢
What happened and how do I fix it??
Yes, it does auto-save every 15 minutes, but my last auto-save was done before I imported and inserted about 5 different clips, and it would be a HUGE pain to have to redo all that.

Help please!

To have any chance at helping, we need more information, including the exact version of the Adobe apps you are using, your computer hardware and storage specs, the media file types you are using, how you imported them into the project (Adobe Media Browser or another method?)

Much of this information can be dropped into your signature, so when you ask questions in the future, it is all available without re-typing.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

You need to do what Jon says.

Over the last few versions, Adobe applications have become more IT adventures than applications that always work as advertised. The beta testing is abysmal. Some think Adobe has made its own users the unwitting beta testers due to the genuinely weird failures.

Tracking down your particular odd malfunction could take a while. Sorry.

or go back to your last saved version of the project, assuming you're using "auto-save". Depending on how frequently you set it to save your project, you may lose your last few minutes of editing, but you won't have to go back to the beginning.
