It sounds like the lock exists in the repository but not in your working copy.

I do not know how you got into this situation, and I'm not sure if
this will work, but here's what I would try next:

Make a new working copy at an old revision where the file still
exists. Get a new lock on the file (steal your old lock). Release the
lock. Then do an svn update to get back to the latest version without
any locks.
