bathroom outlets not working

I have been in my house for about a year and a half. It was built in 1990. A couple of months ago, I realized that the outlets in both bathrooms are not working. One of them we had switched out for a newer outlet and faceplate, but the other is still the same as when we moved in. I have reset the three GFCIs that I could find. Lighting works in both bathrooms. I am at a complete loss of what to do next. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Bathroom receptacle should be GFI protected. You need to look in the basement, powder room and outside for a GFI and attempt to reset it. You could also check the breaker panel for a GFI breaker.

On the receptacle you changed out, was it a regular duplex or was it a GFI? If it was a GFI did you replace it with a GFI?

It was regular and I replaced it with a regular.

I found GFI in kitchen and 2 in garage. Reset all three, still no power from outlets in both bathrooms.

Most of the time there is another GFI to reset but it's just not in an easy location to find.
