Layers randomly missing/deleted after render

I just finished rendering a project in After Effects. I don't expect a solution to this, as it's super weird and nothing like this has ever happened to me in any piece of software before, but I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this:
I sent my Adobe After Effects project to Adobe Media Encoder to render. It took about 6 hours to render. When the final video came out, I noticed that a few layers were missing from the video. I went back to my project, and the layers were completely gone, nowhere to be found. They aren't hidden, and they weren't the last things that I added to the project (which rules out the chance of me forgetting to save the project before closing after effects). Newer elements that I added to the project were there in the render, but these few layers, just totally gone.
I'm really scratching my head over this one...like...what the hell?! Where did they go?! Anyone have an issue like this before?
