I imported clips and confirmed they were in fact in the event browser.

 

The next time I entered FCPX, approximately 50% of the event clips had the dreaded red/yellow "Missing File" icon.  These clips were imported to a library project that was previously on a different hard drive.  They were imported to the new hard drive after I changed the storage location of that particular library of events to the second external hard drive.

 

I've selected the clips that are missing.  Choose File > Relink Files   When the new window appears I cannot find a match.  I click on the devices icon, even the hard drive that used to contain that library title, and I don't see the missing files.  Makes no sense.  I know for a fact the clips were at one time in the library.  I never erase (initialize) a media card before I confirm that media has been imported.

 

If I'm missing something in this recovery process, please, please respond with possible solutions.

 

Thank you.
