Flows have disappeared from list

Three of my flows have disappeared from the 'Shared with me' list. The flows were created by myself and shared with others, and they have as well disappeared from their 'Shared with me' list. The flows are still running and doing their job just fine, but we can't view the run history nor edit them. 
For one of the flows I found a link in a manual, I was able to open the flow, edit and save it, and now it's there again in the 'Shared with me' list. 

Where had it been gone? What about the others, is there a way to 'recover' them without having the original link? They definitely have not been deleted, they're just hidden somewhere.

If you're using edge browser, I have been having an issue with the show more erroring out and refusing to pull the next page of flows for me to look for one try using chrome if you're not already. Flows show up in your list in the order of most recently edited. So the longer something goes without being edited and other flows have been edited since it will fall to bottom of the list. Power Studio works really well even in the free version for more easily being able to browse and search (this might be a paid feature). It uses the underlying API connection to pull all your flow information across. I don't know for certain if it will pull "shared with me" as I'm the primary creator in my company, so I don't have a flow created by someone else shared with me to confirm.

@srduval thanks, good point. Since I have a lot of flows, I normally search for a keyword in the flow name right away. It seems that's the problem. There must be at least one match within the first page loaded, or you won't get a 'Show more' option! Apparently it searches only the first page pulled, kind of a delegation limit.

Solution: If you can't find your flow, clear the search box, scroll down to the very bottom of the list, click on the 'Show more' button and search again. If still not found, scroll down once more, click the button again, etc. in order to search all pages.

Hey @Anonymous 

Try this action or some action that is present in the connector.

@Sundeep_Malik I'm referring to cloud flows. And they're not deleted, they trigger as per design and work fine. And since I cannot find the flow in my list, I can't open it to look at the connectors! Thanks anyway.

This worked for me (both in Edge and Chrome browser), I can see again all the flows in my list. Some older ones may now be affected, but I know now how to 'rescue' them. 
Another option had come to my mind before I read @srduval 's response: make the flow fail (by deleting or removing access to some data it needs), as the owner you will get a failure notification with a link to it. I didn't have to go that route though, thanks for the 'Show more' hint!
