OK, not constructive, but . . .
The old "Where the hell did I save my file? Didi I even save it at all?" question. Asked it myself far too many times!
Maybe search with wildcards? Best of luck!

Photoshop cannot save into a compressed zip folder.
If you double-clicked the file your operating system will have unzipped it into a temporary folder then sent a copy to Photoshop. A subsequent File - Save will have just saved it back into that temporary folder, NOT into the zip file. The good news is that (on Windows at least) the folder should still be around somewhere.
Have you looked in your File - Open Recent menu? You may just be able to find the name there and re-open it.
Hi Noel, thanks for the prompt reply.
And you were right! It was in the temp folder for the program I used to open the zip, which is actually jzip and not 7zip like I put in the tags.
