I am not sure what you are seeing
some pictures that show up in my iPhoto do not show up in the Package Contents (neither the Original or Modified folders).
That simply is not possible - you could have imported some without copying them to the iPhoto library (This is strongly not recommended) so you only have an alias in the library rather than the photo - but iPhoto can not display an image that dose not have either the image or a link in its library
In iPhoto is yoru iPhoto trash empty?

Thank you for responding.
I have only ever imported photos the same way...plug my camera in, iPhoto starts, click Import. So, I am not sure how I could have imported some without copying them to the iPhoto library.
And, the ones that are missing are ones from the same day (for example, one in particular is from a trip to Spain. iPhoto shows 360 pictures in the Event, package contents only shows 272 pictures and even when I search for the one picture I know is missing by image number, nothing comes up).
And, yes, my trash in iPhoto is empty.
I am at such a loss and have no idea how to solve this. But, I appreciate your input.

Again - if the photos shows in Photo then it is in your iPhoto library - not sure why yo are not finding it but it is there - but that is one of the problems with doing unsupported things
And what you are doing is unsupported and dangerous - you should not be mucking around in the iPhoto library for any reason
If you want a backup of your photos (rather than a backup of your iPhoto library - which you must always have) then select the photos in iPhoto and export to the desired location - see this user tip for details of the options available to you during export
