She probably did drop her fry. If she is in the main tank depending on what you have in it, the fry are probably hiding (they are good at doing that). Also if there are other fish in with her it is possible that some of the fry got eatten by the other fish. But as long as there are hiding spots in the tank plants, decorations they will be hiding. Keep an eye out and you will probably see some. The first time I saw one of the fry from my platy I saw something dart across the gravel really quick. Haven't seen it since, has been a couple of days, but like I said they are good at hiding. Also if you have a hob filter you might want to check inside to see if any fry got sucked up by the intake.
