Is there another place these files could be saved? I can use them in Garageband so they must be somewhere.
You have looked in your User Library, right? ~/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops
The loops could also be installed in the System Library, directly on your HD: To open this location, select the path below, ctrl-click it, and use the command Services > Reveal from the pop-up menu.
/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops/SingleFiles/

for some reason Garageband was saving the loops in 2 different places. Do you know the reason for this?
How can I create loops that are "My Loops" vs "Shared Loops on my Mac" on purpose. Does this labeling allow them to run on other programs I use (like Logic)?

Check your Preferences setting:
In the "Loops" tab of the Preferences panel - the "My Apple Loops" option.
If you share your loops with all users on your mac (users havg different accounts) then the loops will be installed in the System Library, but if you do not share, your loops will be installed in your user library. If you log in from a different account you will not be able to use them.
I don't have Logic installed, but both installation places should make it possible for Logic and MainStage to use the loops. It is the standard place where applications are looking for Apple Loops.

Only downside to sharing with all users will be that you will have duplicate files... (private files inside your user folder and files inside the Library folder for all users)
