It should be protected by a GFI and it tripped. More than likely the garage outlet is the GFI outlet.

Then you need to find where the GFCI is. Often it is hidden behind something that hasn't been moved in years. Attic, basement,baths, kitchens, garages, crawl spaces, under eaves, outside are places to look.
