address locators not visible in database

I am unable to see our address locators as objects our Enterprise geodatabase.

They were there in recent memory (two days ago was the last known solid memory).  Then we had a problem with the GeocodeServer service which led me to investigate the source locator service - gone.  Not visible.  A screen capture is attached.

Easy enough to recreate the Address Locator, but was told by ArcCatalog is already existed.  Indeed, you can also see the .LOX tables in the database, just not the locator object. 

I could not complete a rebuild of the service. 

I manually typed in the path to the address locator in the AGS geocode service and it does work.

I have a python script to rebuild the locator, and it presumably executes (without error).

If trying to browse for or using the locator service from the database connection using any ArcX GUI, the address locator cannot be found. 


This is happening on all instances of ArcCatalog tested, also versions 10.0, 10.1, and 10.2 exhibit the same behavior.

Source database is v 10.0 SQL 2005.

I am sysadmin. Read only and service accounts have this same behavior.


Where did it go / where is it hiding?  Anyone else have this experience or any ideas?
