Please provide a screen shot of the timeline with the 3D layer position coordinates and the camera position and point of interest values exposed.

Create a second camera - this should show you your 2d changed to 3d layer, together with the first camera and the other layers. You can use this camera to position your missing layer in 3d space and then turn it off or delete it.

I have published a script that allows you to promote 2D layers to 3D while keeping their apparent position in the active camera's view: keen_3dLayerTools [link]. I think it will help you do exactly what you want.

Taking a cue from Jeff Almasol [link], I’m releasing this as part of the #devforacause project. If you find this useful, please consider making a donation to a charity that’s important to you, and tell us how you’re paying it forward with the Twitter hashtag #devforacause.
