Missing folder still visible in Search

A folder has disappeared from my computer. However, using Windows Search, I can still find a file that was in the folder. 
In Search, the folder path shows exactly as it should, and yet I cannot find the folder anywhere. 
I have already tried all variances of viewing in Folder Options. And I have scanned the entire PC for viruses and malware with no detection found.
How can I see/access this folder again??

=======================================
Is it possible that the folder has become hidden?

Try the following steps and maybe the file will reappear.

Windows XP -
Go to...Control Panel / Folder Options / View tab.
Tick..."Show Hidden Files and Folders" / Apply / OK.

OK...but when otherwise missing files show up in a search
it can be an indication of hidden files. Sorry for making the
suggestion.
