LR3.6 JPG/XMP recovery


I usually shoot RAWs and edit them in LR3.6. Since I have "Automatically save to XMP set", I usually remove edited images from the LR catalogs and manually back up both the original RAWs and XMPs.

This time I decided to use LR with Jpegs. So when I removed edited/published files from the LR catalog, I realized that there are no XMP files in the folder with all the original JPEGs were stored. Jpegs show the original unmodified date so I guess LR did not store the editing info in them. RE-exporting them into the LR did not show my edits.

The "Save to XMP" option is still checked for the catalog, so I am confused. Where are the XMP files for the jpegs stored?

Did I actually loose all my edits or is there any way to recover them?
