Did you check the SharePoint Recycle Bin?
If you automatically sync SharePoint to your computer, you can use File History to get the previous versions.

It is not file from document library.
It is SharePoint List item, and it has fields.
The data of only one field is disappear from SharePoint List.

Also, data of only that field is not showing in version history and other fields are showing in version history.
That choice field data is not showing in version history.
