See if one of these has any help:
About AirPlay and Airplay Mirroring
AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer). For non-qualifying Macs you can try using Air Parrot.
Several Apple Articles Regarding AirPlay
Thanks to the $15 Beamer, AirPlay streaming is still possible on Macs that do not support Airplay and mirroring.

I too have recently experienced the ability to either see my Apple TV. I've got all the compatible hardware and osftware versions installed. I have been able to use it in the past, but it stopped offering the Airplay icon on my iPhone 5 or iPad 2.
I also used to be able to use the Reflector application on my MacBook Air to stream the iPad and iPhone images for training presentations. I can no longer do it.
I also am unable to connect either my iPad 2 or iPhone 5 Apple TV Remote app to teh Apple TV.

Suddenly stopped working for me too - only had my Apple TV for 3 weeks and for the first two I could see it fine from my desktop Mac and my iPad 2, then a few days ago it 'disappeared'
Updated the Apple TV software after this and it still isn't working
Tried re-booting it and the other devices
Apple TV is definitely on the same wireless network; AirPlay is On; and it's perfectly happy to play YouTube/Flickr content from the internet, just won't play with the other machines

I've managed to fix mine (thanks to reading another slightly related post)
I rebooted the router (the one device I hadn't thought to reboot) and hey presto, everything can now see the Apple TV
No idea why this would make any difference, seeing as all devices were able to use the wifi to get to the outside world

I tried everthing, then finally tried rebooting the Modem and Router and that fixed it. I followed these steps, it's for an iPad but worked for my MacBook Air.
I have a stereo upstairs and that showed up as well, sweet.

After much fiddling I'm seeing precisely the same issue.
Gen 3 Apple TV (connected to network by GB ethernet)
15" MBP Retina Display (2012 model) (connected to network by WiFi)
I've tried rebooting the Apple TV and my MBP and it doesn't help. BUT, reboot the router and it works perfectly.

I found this fix from 2010 when someone upgraded their software and ended up loosing Airplay....sounded crazy but totally worked! My airplay icon is back, and working!!
On your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, navigate to Settings > General > International > Language and change to a different language (e.g. if you are using English, switch to French). The device will go through a language switch/reset process, and your AirPlay icon should be restored.
Next navigate back to Settings > General > International > Language (translated into the new language, of course) and switch back to your original language.
