Minor points that probably have no effect unless there's a *.jpg file in
the current directory: use single, not double quotes, to avoid shell
expansion. You want the asterisk to get passed into the find command as
a parameter. Also, the "iname" says ignore case, so only one iteration
is needed.

This makes me think they are still *not* listed?

Last stab in the dark: any "undelete" capability on that file system? If
the files are not found, I am guessing they have been deleted. Barring
that facility, I hope you have a recent backup.

Good luck.
