Have you tried selecting an anchor and applying a 100% black border of several points width to display the a-frame? If the frame has the float property, it's possible that it's moved to the next connected text frame in the text flow. If View > Show Borders is on, you can look for the black line at the bottom of a text frame that indicates overflowed content that has no place to go - i.e, no next frame in the flow.
