You'll need to restore the files from backup!

This is a big topic. Exactly how you recover depends on what kind of backup you have and what was lost. The backup and recovery guide goes into this in detail:

Ideally, the DBA for the database will be able to help you with this.

If you've got NO backup... then the data's lost :(
