Can't find saved file

Hello everyone, i am encountering an extremely frustrating error. Maya crashed, as per usual. I had saved just before it crashed, but even before that i had been saving all day long (i have autosave turned on and i manually save about every 2-5 minutes). 

Well i didn't pay attention to the path as maya was crashing, and now all my progress from today is gone? my scene files from yesterday/previous are there, but nothing from today. And i would say that oh i had just forgotten to save, but I know for a fact that i had been saving all day long and that it had successfully saved before crashing. 

I think Maya has done this to me before and saved the file to a really weird location/possibly under a different name, but I have been searching my computer for an hour and nothing. I'm so frustrated i could cry, a whole day of progress gone. Does anyone know where Maya could have moved these files to??

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

*edit to say i am working on a mac
