    My Lightroom 5 photo catalog is empty. Years of work has vanished.  Any suggestions?


      I opened Lightroom 5 yesterday to find it prompting me to select my photo catalog which it had never done before.  When I found the catalog in the default location, nothing was in it.  Besides it didn't seem like it could be the right file since it had not been updated in over a year according to the file "modified date".  I regularly update my catalog as prompted whenever I close the program.  So my attempts to restore this file have been unsuccessful since it seems like the wrong file to begin with.  But when I search for another catalog file in my computer I cannot find one.  I do not know what has happened or changed but right now years of work has vanished.  Any suggestions would be welcome!  Thank you!
