Let me give a suggestion for a test .This is for a confirmation TEST ONLY and must be undone as soon as the test is over .On the dead receptacle, place a short jumper wire from the ground to the silver screw side.Then see if the receptacles work and lights etc.This will confirm if the hot is missing or the neutral wire is missing and loose on the circuit.Again, this is not to be left after testing.This will get it down to the exact wire that is loose, then juts find the location.Thanks
