Your documents are still on the computer, in the directory in which they were saved.  What
has happened is that OpenOffice has lost the list of shortcuts to these documents, possibly
due to a computer or program crash, or to an over-hasty power off of the computer before the
internal housekeeping had been finally written to disk.  If you use /File /Open to navigate
to the directory n which you saved these documents, as you select each one and open it, it
will then appear on the recent Documents list.
