Bathroom lights/fan not working

I turned bathroom's lights and ventilation switches on at the same time and it turned everything off at the same time. So I thought the breaker went off, I went to basement switch box and turned everything off and on, even the main switch. But bathroom is still out of electricity, no plug, no light, no vents working. the power outlet and light switches are not gfci as there are not reset buttons on them. Does anyone know what might be wrong with it?

Check the house for a GFI somewhere else.
In my daughters house the GFI for the upstairs bathroom is in the garage.
I know this seems crazy but it is not that uncommon.

That's what happened, I found the GFCI in another bathroom, which I find weird as to why they do that. But it is back to normal. so Thank you.

GFCI used to be a lot more expensive than they are now. It was cheaper to install one GFCI to service several areas.
