I tried every select query I could think of including with no where
clause and simply searching manually for the record but it was just
not there. I had someone else verify this as well. I didn't think it
could just disappear either. We finally decided to use the dump file
and re-create the database but just before that I tried a backup and
got an error about a missing attribute on relid xxxx. Someone with
more Postgres experience said that the table was corrupted and i
should just rebuild, so we did.

Please note that I CANNOT reproduce this in our QA! I think maybe the
issue noted by steve below may be the problem.
