Default Photos deleted themselves

Good evening had a problem today where my photos have vanished ....I've not deleted them or messed around in file manager...
File manager is saying there's no files in the directory.
Only thing I've tampered with is changing kernels which surely cannot automatically delete photos..
Had lots of photos of newborn baby which I do have percent backed up on Google photos

Has this ever happened to anyone else..
I've used digger pro which only brings up half photos obviously damaged too bad but I don't see why not has there was there this morning ...

Rom is g3 optimus fantastic rom
And Bruce's kernel

I had this happen months ago & thought I had accidentally deleted them somehow but yesterday without any interference all my photos in internal memory disappeared except the two I took that day.
I Googled it & found there's others with the same problem.
I'm aware that choosing SD card as default stops this risk but I needed it set to internal for other reasons.
The photos have completely vanished from the phone.
I've set my default back to store on external drive now but I'm really annoyed this happened & I realise now this isn't the first time.
