Maybe you dragged it to a secondary [virtual] monitor? I’m not quite sure what to suggest you do as there could be so many different things going on here. You didn’t even identify what desktop environment you’re using, so you’re leaving us guessing about most of the details.

Maybe you dragged it to another workspace. Are you using Gnome? Just use the shortcuts SUPER+PgDn (or SUPER + PgUp), or CTRL+ALT+Up and CTRL+ALT+Down to navigate between your workspaces.

Using the Dash-to-Dock extension, hover the cursor over the Dash panel, and you can use your mouse wheel to scroll between workspaces...

... or if you click on Activities in the top left corner, there is panel appearing on the right of your screen that shows all workspaces...

As I mentioned, this is only if you are using Gnome as your Desktop.
