ios 11.1.2 iphone 6s

While attempting to move icon to folder, it disappeared.

I have examined every screen and folder and cannot locate.

Search shows app still installed. in App Store, the app shows "open" option.

Have done hard reset.

How do i restore the icon for this app?

When you do a search with Spotlight Search, it should show you where it is if in a folder. Or you could go to settings > General > Usage > Manage storage > scroll to the App > Tap it > delete it. Then reinstall it in the App Store.

Ah, but it doesn't always. If a partial word in the name is not entered it doesn't show the folder. That is how I missed it.

As shown in the second screen shot, it is in the business folder. But, didn't see it at first. Found it in the second page of a folder. With 8 items already in folder it somehow wound up on a second page.
