    My lock screen is a picture that has much sentimental value to me and it's not in my gallery or anywhere else so I guess I must have accidentally deleted it. I've tried apps but all they retrieve is the home wallpaper, not the lock screen.

    What phone you have? Did you try checking in the gallery trash files?

    Welcome to Android Central! I think that when you create a custom wallpaper using your own image, a copy of that image is saved to a protected system directory (which is why the wallpaper remains even after you deleted the original image file from storage). In order to access that file, you'd need to root the phone first, and then figure out what system directory that image is saved to.
