Hi kyle,

did you start DigiKam since you lost the images? If yes, do you have a recent 
backup of its database? One possible route to go would be some perl (or the 
like) script to "loop through all "Images" entries in digikams database and 
check if the file exists in the filesystem".
If you already did start digikam, the image data (name, file size etc) should 
still be there, but the paths might be lost. And you might not be able to 
decide whether a file is lost or has been deleted intentionally some day in 
the past.
