Hi my name is ***** ***** to Just Answer. I am reviewing your question and will reply ASAP.
It seems like the partition has been deleted. In Disk Utility you can see the physical disk, but can you see any partition listed under it?
Before you do anything else to the HDD you should try software to try recover the missing partition.
Let me know by replying if you have any questions.
