You are seeing the small display preview or thunbnail - the original high resolution photo is what is missing
In the iPhoto preferences is the preference to "copy imported items to the iPhoto library" checked (default) or have you unchecked it?

Thank you for the reply
It is checked, and has always been. All photos are stored in the iPhoto library folder on my computer.
You might be right about the thumbnail, though it is hard to tell since the photos at hand are taken with an iPhone 4. I was not able to find any missing photos in any events taken with my proper camera. I am able to zoom into the photo while the error message is displayed though?
I do keep bakups of both the Library file itself and standalone photos, but either way I find it absolutely unacceptable that iPhoto just looses photos by itself ...
Any other suggestions?
Edit: I might add that my library exceeds 10K photos if that puts me in a greater risk?

Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library again
If that does not do it then restore your backup of the iPhoto library from just before the problem
