    Specs:
    iMac Core i5, iPad, iPhone 4
    1. Log out and login again.
    2. Get MenuBar and choose the Finder > Relaunch Finder button.
    3. Use the Quit Finder option. Then Relaunch Finder again.
    4. Restart the Dock.

    Hoe that helps. How did you manage that?

    Thanks! Log out then log in helped!
    I was trying many other things and nothing made it reappear... other icons were easy, but I could restore them all just by this steps.
