I use a program called Digital Image Recovery.
Type it into Google and you'll get it. It's free and it will collect every digital image on your hard drive.
Another I've just remembered is reinstall Picassa. I believe it does a search of it's own.

Warning. I did a search of one of my HDDs and D.I.Recovery picked up 7.8 GB of images.

Did you by any chance edit the photo you have lost? If so the original will be in a hidden folder creatd by Picasa. I had a similar problem and eventualy found the hidden folder. This is from Picasa info site;

'When you save a photo in Picasa, we create an edited copy of the photo and move the original to a subfolder called “Originals.” The "Originals" subfolder is hidden on your computer, and will not be visible in Picasa. This automatic backup allows you to undo or revert your saves'.

If it is there you need to search hidden folders.
