Are you trying to search for the photos by searching for them on Flickr? In some cases, I couldn't find pictures that I posted by searching for them until a week or so after I posted them.
Is the problem that you can't see your photos on your photostream? Perhaps the photos were deemed by Flickr to be inappropriate, and so they were removed.
I would think that if your account was truly deleted, then you couldn't post here, since in theory you wouldn't have an account, and so you wouldn't be a user.

The account the OP is posting from was created today (11th June) in order to ask about an older account that he can no longer find :-)

pebs1man What is the screen name of the 'missing' account ?

That's a good point Stevekin. This kinda sounds like something that he should contact Flickr about.

He could contact flickr or if he knows the screen name we can help him search here.

If it's the log-in details he's missing, that he definitely needs flickr staff to sort out. Of course, it's true that only staff can confirm whether an account was actually deleted.

Assuming you meant "deleted", there's one foolproof way to find out.

Go to the photostream. If the account was deleted, it'll say "this member is no longer active on Flickr".

can't find my photostream

That is odd. You have the URL for it, correct? Or at least a browser bookmark? (I can't imagine creating an account and then not having a link to get back to it.)
