I use google chrome and today wiped my computer clean of files, but when I got it back up and running again I re downloaded chrome, logged into my google account, and my bookmarks were gone.
The reason I use chrome is because I was under the impression that it saved your bookmarks, and I have proof of this in the form of using chrome on my phone and the bookmarks being synced with what I had on my laptop.
So, how do I get my bookmarks back (without going through all the bookmarks on the phone and redoing them on the computer) and why did they disappear in the first place?

You probably can't get them back without copying them from your phone; you could, however, open all your bookmarks on your phone, and then retrieve them all on your desktop from your browsing history, as they should appear there when you're logged into Chrome on both devices with the same account.
To make sure that bookmarks are synced, though (or that they should be), go to the Chrome settings on your computer, and click on "sync" below your account. Then make sure that this box is checked:
