the messages were sitting to go to trash rather than an inbox
I changed the password .and I removed the filter

You messages were in trash. Yahoo regularly makes a sweep of all accounts and deletes trashed messages.

You must not store messages in the trash bin because they will get deleted from the server. Once deleted from the server they cannot be recovered.

I don't know where you could have sent a recovery request because Yahoo doesn't provide such a service.

as I said the mail has been messages were not in trash before hacking

How were you able to determine that your account was hacked, your login and recovery information were not changed?

The fact that messages were deleted does not prove that the account was hacked.

I suggest that someone near to you, four days ago, knew your address and password accessed your account and deleted the emails. I suggest you investigate in your surroundings.
