I really just need to vent, but if anyone has suggestions or explanations please reply! To set the scene: I'm playing on a Realm with two other players, one of whom is my brother. We all have full iron armor and swords, and some pretty high enchants (Protection II or III on all pieces, I had a Sharpness III sword and Power IV bow).
We're in the middle of a raid when my mom calls my brother and I down for dinner. We say goodbye to our friend and all three of us log off. When we log back on an hour later, our friend isn't back yet, so my brother and I grind for arrows at our base (an easy 200 or more blocks from the village). Our friend comes back, and exactly two hours after logging off we re-enter the village.
The raid is over, it seems. No raid bar, even though we were in the middle of a wave. There is one single villager and several beds, as well as two iron golems, so this clearly still counts as a village.
We're disappointed, so we re-visit the Pillager Outpost and kill more of them to go re-start the raid.
We dispatch the first waves easily, but eventually we can't find the rest of the raiders and the bar displays that there is one left. We search the village and surrounding area (a plains) several times over, but find nothing. After ten to fifteen minutes, my brother suggests I kill all entities since it might be a glitch. I do. That clears it up, and the new wave begins.
We take out that wave, but then we run into another problem. We've all died a few times, but we slept in the village, so we come right back. This time, we all die at about the same time, and when we come back the raid bar at the top is gone. No matter where you walk, it isn't there. Did we win? We kill the last Vindicator, but we don't get the Hero of the Village effect. Did we lose? There aren't any more enemies.
Ultimately a disappointing three hours invested. We definitely plan to spend the next week or so grinding

"Hey guys, Antvenom here, and welcome back to another Minecraft video."
If you were all dead they might have despawned since there were no players within 128 blocks, I'm not sure if they would have time to despawn before the chunks are unloaded, I have no experience with Realms.
Were you in the spawn chunks?
Do Realms have spawn chunks?
Or it could be a glitch, other people have complained about disappearing raids.
