Eulogy and Clover disappeared!

It's been a good, long while since I played a game of FO3, so I started a new character (male, evil-aligned gunslinger/assassin) and started my early-game ritual of collecting the Stat Bobbleheads. Since I haven't played a Slaver on my previous games (even the ones more evil than Roland, my gunslinger), and really hadn't even visited Paradise Falls before, I stopped by and picked up the "Strictly Business" sidequest very in the game since I had to walk right past it, anyway.

While I was there, I stopped by Eulogy's Pad, chatted with him about slavery in general and the price for Clover (I planned on using the fire/rehire trick to get both Clover and Jericho as companions when I had the money), and went on about my business. So far so good.

Then, about, 7 real-time hours later, I stop by Paradise Falls to collect some cash for a slave, drop off a load of Chinese Assault Rifles at Lock 'N' Load, and purchase Clover. They were gone; Eulogy, Clover, and the black girl Eulogy keeps as his sex-slave. Forty and the other bodyguards were still milling around front, but Eulogy and his tricks were nowhere to be found. I searched the whole compound, kept waiting for hours & days and searching again, but I can't find them anywhere.

Can I get them back? Can I reload a (slightly) earlier save and try again? I don't have a save from before I first visited Paradise Falls, and I wouldn't use it anyway since it's so far back. I don't want to restart my game either, though, because I'm a good 9-12 hours and have spent most of it on the tedious "game-before-the-game" stuff like collecting Bobbleheads. At the same time, having Eulogy and Clover gone will really negatively impact my roleplaying for this character and screw up several Paradise Falls related sidequests.

Can I get them back? If not, does anyone know what caused the game to glitch so I can avoid it next time? Did I make a mistake by talking to Eulogy (or even visiting Paradise Falls) only a couple hours into the game? Is it because I discussed Clover to learn her price but didn't immediately buy her? Has anyone else encountered this? It sucks, let me tell you.

Did you check the balcony?

Other than that, no idea sorry.

Yeah, no one is there.

The weird thing is, I've never heard of this happening to anyone else. There are several well-known glitches involving characters/objects disappearing, but I don't think I've ever heard of Eulogy and his harem disappearing before.

Check the doctor's office, they tend to get stuck there.
