Check your Android > Media > com.whatsapp > Whatsapp > Database folder.

If it looks like this, you can still restore your backup from 5 days ago.
1. Backup/copy everything out to another folder or a computer.
2. Delete everything in current folder except for maybe 9/8/7, auto backups are done at 2am so you agar agar.
3. Rename whichever one you're using to msgstore.db.crypt14 like how the latest one is.
4. Uninstall your WhatsApp, reinstall, when prompted if you wanna restore backup from gcuck drive, say no, then will have option to restore from local backup.

If you're using iPhone then disregard and good luck.

can try restoring old messages backup file if you're using android, but that will also mean other latest messages from other chat group will be gone too
