Creating and saving a TikTok draft and finding it again is quite easy but they might disappear sometimes. That is maybe because posted videos are saved on the servers where drafts are not.

They are saved locally on the device that they were uploaded to the app. You can see it as if the TikTok app has been deleted and installed again with the data gone, then the drafts will have been deleted. In such a case, there is no way to get the drafts back again.
