Outlook 2007 PST Files Gone After Leaving Domain

I removed a few computer from our domain that use Outlook 2007 and now their PST Outlook 2007 files seem to be gone. I look in the user folders under C:\user and am not finding anything. It seems like everything was wiped. Is this possible? Where could they have gone?

At the office we used roaming profiles so they could log on any office PC and get their email. If your office IT is gone or non-existent why not copy over the usual email PST and restore that after the departure?

An .ost file maybe?

That's the local copy of the MS Exchange mailbox. But in that case, those mails should still be on the MS Exchange server also.
And, of course, they are on the backup, aren't they?
