like don said, it probably shot itself out of the exhaust. what does the sides and top of your piston look like? im not sure but when a ring breaks id think it would stay stuck in the groove of the piston and scratch the cylinder up, shoot out the exhaust or somehow end up on top of the piston, the piston doesnt travel downlow enough in the cylinder for the rings to be anywhere near the open area of the crankcase does it? i wouldnt think so. i probably wouldnt worry too much about it and just get a new ring/s
