Recently opened a game I was working on and all the maps have gone from the editor menu. When I play test the game it still works fine and all the files are in the right place they just do not show in the editor anymore and I can't figure out why.

Looks as if your mapinfo file was damaged - that is where the editor looks for map information, including which maps exists.

For a short repair, make a copy of your project (IMPORTANT), make a new project, add new maps into the new project until it has the correct number of empty maps and then copy the map info file but not the maps into your backup. Don't change the original until you have repaired everything and always keep a backup.

And then search for the reason why the file was damaged to prevent it from happening again.

Thank you. This worked. Do you have any idea what I should look for to find out why the file was damaged?
