I was playing minecraft pocket edition and quit and saved my game before I left, because I didn't die, however when I logged back in I was somehow in my house. What happened to my stuff I had on me and how do I get back to where I was?
Every time instead of saving and quitting I just close the game so it loads everything that happens.
This includes the mobs and deaths so that could be part of your problem.
When this happens I make sure I know my location Just in case.
One another thing you could do is build a box around you to stand in.
I hope this helps :)
