UPDATE: French Farmer was right! It was in job hell AKA hold hell. Apparently an editor snapped it up a nano second after I hit submit. This was at 6 AM today. I have never been so glad to have a job on hold. The job ID was correct. I went and invoiced it before I addressed the hold. BTW, the editor did their job. I had inserted a wrong pump photo.
I still it was an anomaly. I've never had one disappear like that.
