Well, if autosave was on, try going here to look for any autosave files:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\

Of check your word settings for save and check where your current auto save flder is set too...

Core7, I realise that it won't help now, but the following information might help in future, should it happen again:
For Office 2007 or 2003
My Office program did not open a recovered file - Word - Office.com

For Office 2010
My Office program did not open a recovered file - Word - Office.com

And a word to the wise for the future: SAVE YOUR WORK OFTEN! I save every few minutes. I've lost important documents and I never want that to happen to me again.

Besides making sure auto-save is on.. I also always create my documents in the file system before editing. I.e. right click folder and select "New Word Document". That creates and actual file to start editing from right from the start... And then paranoidingly I hit the save icon after each chunk of work I do, or every little stretch break I make...

In fact when it's something REALLY important like a multi-day/week/month project like a novel, I make a new copy of the file every morning before opening it to edit it for the day.
