You didn't mention what operating system, but the .OST/.PST files are under
a hidden/system folder. You need to configure Explorer/search to show you
these types of files/folders.

Hint:
Documents and Settings\<USERID>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Documents and Settings\<USERID>\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Exchangeserver installed!

Odd as unjoining/rejoing a computer to the domain usually doesn't cause
problems with existing user profiles stored on workstation. Any chance you
are staring at a new user profile? (e.g. Under c:\documents and settings\ do
you see another folder than might below to said person?)

Other than that, can't explain why the PST file(s) would go missing as I
have never seen it happen in regards to an unjoin/rejoin or
uninstall/reinstall of Office.
