Question

Check your Lost & Found for a coalesced object  - the icon looks a bit like a stack of little boxes & it could be named anything, including Object, depending on what was picked up last.

Rez the object and you should then be able to pick up your items one by one.

Sandboxes clear all prims at set time intervals, you need to check the rules for whichever one you are on to see what the time gap is on that particular one & take lots of copies of your build as you go along to avoid having to start over.

The dreaded autoreturn!!!  0.0

Yeah, a lot of parcels like sandboxes and other places that allow you to rez objects often have a set interval after which the items should be returned to your lost and found folder.  If you are rezzing things for which you do not have "copy" permission, you should be mindful of this setting.

A lot of places post the autoreturn settings somewhere.  If you don't see them, you can always find out what the autoreturn setting is by right clicking a bit of open land, select "About Land" from the menu, and then click on the tab "objects"  One of the settings on that page is the autoreturn setting in minutes.  That many minutes after you rez something there, it gets sent to your lost and found folder.

Well, that is what should happen.  Every now and then an inventory transaction will go awry causing items to be lost.  Be sure it isn't in the lost and found folder.  rez the first few things in that folder just to see what they are if the names aren't clear.

If the items are truly lost, as happens more often than LL would like to admit, then the best course of action is to get another copy if it is a freebie.  If it is something that you paid for, then go to your transactions history, find out exactly when you bought it, and provide that info to the seller.  Most reputable sellers are pretty cool with providing you with a replacement if they can verify that you bought the item.  That's why you dig up the exact date/time of your purchase before you notify them.  They can check that against their transaction history to verify the sale. 

Good luck!

If you don't find the things batched into a bunch in your inventory, i.e. sort by latest and pull out the last few objects, they can be clustered together, then go to view/preferences/ and general page and clear cache the relog and wait patiently while everything loads again, it might flush back in.
