Ejected SD Card While Camera Was Recording Video - Nikon D5200

Hello all, thanks in advance for your time and consideration to my current dilemma.

Last night, my brother's rock band performed their first concert.  I recorded it in 1080p/30fps with my Nikon D5200.  Unfortunately, I made a huge mistake and ejected the memory card from the camera while it was still recording video.  I feel like such an idiot.  Beer may have played into the equation...

The memory card has it's usual DCIM>>D5200 folder structure, but the folders are empty.  HOWEVER, Windows Explorer indicates that the memory card is half full, despite their being 0 files on the card.  That tells me that the video file is still present somewhere on that SD card.  Whether or not the data is corrupted or playable is another matter entirely, but I'd really like to pull that data off the card and see if there's something there I can work with.

I have spent all morning researching this problem, and I have used two different tools so far; Testdisk and Zero Assumption Recovery.  Both applications found a few DELETED files on the disk, but did not locate or migrate the many-GB video file I recorded last night.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
