Can anybody here help me what to do if my app store icon is lost? thanks

    If you can't find it anywhere on the iPad then I would suggest a restore. This should allow you to backup all your data first and then reset the iPad.

    As I replied to your exact same post on this subject elsewhere, it's almost certainly because you have turned it off in Settings/Restrictions/Installing Apps. You'll probably find that is switched off.
    Turn it on and eveything should be OK.

    Tap Settings / General / then tap *Reset Home Screen Layout*.

    See if that helps.

    Did you try what I suggested above, i.e. checking settings/restrictions?
