This happened to me too. I woke up this morning and all of my text messages were gone. I had not cleared any data or cache. I had not updated out installed anything new. They have all simply disappeared, and many were very important work messages.

Candice- Welcome to the Messages Help Community. Did it run a software update or was a just a basic restart? Also you are using the Google Messages app not just the default one with the device correct?
 
Be well.

Similar thing happened to me as well last night (Sunday 10 May 2020), lost text messages for the last 3 people I texted on Friday night (8 May 2020). Managed to get messages back for 2 people (only lost messages for these 2 people from late April 2020 up to Friday 8 May 2020) after deleting storage in "messages" over and over again, but totally lost everything for the 3rd person who I had continued texting up to last night when texts started disappearing. Kept clearing storage, returing to default "messages" app, updating to latest version of "messages" but text messages for 3rd person remain lost.

When I downloaded and updated again "messages" (2nd or 3rd time) I noticed my phone glitched for a second, then a message that I had sent to the 3rd person disappeared from their feed and appeared in one of the other persons whose text messages had disappeared. The 3rd person stated they did receive the text and the other person also said they received the text that was meant for 3rd person.

I have noticed online that people have been reporting this issue going back to 2015 on various forums including Google - https://support.google.com/messages/search?q=disappearing%2Bmessages&from_promoted_search=true&count=16.

I am using Motorola Moto E6 Plus in Australia with Aldi mobile. Phone Bought Friday 20 December 2019.

This happened to me as well on the morning of 5/10/2020, Mother's Day.  It was like it had some type of synching problem early that morning.  I got a text I knew was from an organization and it showed as coming from my son.  When I rebooted my phone, all my previous texts were deleted.  Are my old messages are all lost?  Today (the 11th) I tried clearing my cache and rebooting.  I found a post that suggested clearing the storage, but when I try it gives me a warning....I'm scared I'll REALLY delete any hope of messages left on my phone?  I'm sad because I was hoping that Google Messages would store my texts in the cloud to keep something like this from happening and also make it easier to switch phones when it's time, but I guess not. :(
I'm on a Moto G7 using Android version 9 
I'm also using the Google Messaging App
