I was naming bones while rigging my model. While typing a bone name I saw my model move upwards without my knowing command. I eventually found it from a speck in the far distance. I scrolled it in successfully. But now it fails to respond to "View" commands. If I hit "7" for aerial view it disappears....again I find it as a speck and scroll it in. This happens with all "view" commands...

When I do locate it and try to drag it around it is as if there is a pivot point miles away and the slightest grab and drag sends it into oblivion.

My pivot point is set on default and my manipulator is set to Global. My model stays in the correct position on the grid all the time.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
