Do no panic yet. Website sometimes disappear and reappear a few days later. Just wait and see if that happens.

As Denis correctly advises sites sometimes drop out of the index for a day or three. Usual advice is to wait and see - it could just be that Google is updating its different datacentres transferring up-to-date info around it network(s).
Of course if you have any reason to believe you may have *over optimised* (read: broken the web master guidelines or 'cheated') and your site disappears then you may wish to re-work your pages to remove your latest 'tweaks'.
Google webmaster tools area can be useful for identifying whether there are problems with your site - for example we accidentally barred Googlebot from our site a little while ago with an overzealouse tweak to a web security tool we develop. The Google webmaster web site quickly alerted us to the issue.
You will need a google account and you will also need to go through a little validation process to prove you have control of that website. Basically Google ask you to add a meta tag to your homepage, or create a new text file on the server. Once you have validated your ownership/control of the site you will have access to some useful feedback about what Google sees on your site and how it displays in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).
