I have a Mac running under 10.6.8 and I am using iPhoto iPhoto '09 version 8.1.2. Yesterday my main iphoto library of over 10,000 pictures disappeared. I went to open it and another library of 22 useless pictures appeared. This has happened before and I would be able to search for the main library and open it but yesterday I could not locate it or any of the jpgs that would have been in it. My grandfather had been on it earlier yesterday morning for a few minutes and closed it. The computer sat on and later when I opened iPhoto only my library of 22 pictures showed up. Can someone please help me somehow find those pics? I started to make another iPhoto library with photos from some discs only to realize how much I didn't have. Please someone help me.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
