How to find "missing" files?

I've got an interesting case of a file that has gone missing.  Doing searches on keywords specific to it and even trying the exact file name will not find it.  Does not appear in the site file list that it was created in either.  I've even searched the trash for it.  How do I know it's really a thing and not just a figment of my imagination?  Well, because there's a published public link to it that still works fine!

 

For the moment, we extracted the information from the public link version and uploaded a new version with a new name (it wouldn't let us use the old name as it said it's in use!).  Long term though, I'd like to clear out this phantom document.  Suggestions on finding and removing it?
