There are AFAIK two ways in which 'guix gc' can delete "live" profiles:

1. you used the '-d' option, which deletes old profile generations,
   optionally filtering on age
2. the profile was inaccessible/invisible to gc (e.g. on a mounted drive
   that was unavailable)

Do either of these scenarios ring a bell?
