If you're running on linux, then you can look into Audit logs of the system under /var/log/audit. Splunk has it's own audit logs too, so you can look them up as well under /var/log/splunk/audit.log. These, couple with the knowledge of who logged in to your system, during the time when the data went missing by analyzing /var/log secure logs, you may begin your investigation.
