The fact that it was present in 1280 and is gone in 1281 tells you which
revision removed it. So you could do

svn log -r1281 -v

and see everything that happened in that revision, along with the log
messages. Do this from the directory where the file used to live, or
from higher up in the tree, because a removal of a file is a
modification to the directory, not to the file.

I imagine whoever deleted the file forgot to log why, but the -v will at
least tell you who it was, what they did, and what log message they used.
