I had a client in the same situation. (I assume you are the person who took out the loan on your own 401(k) ) When the rollover took place, the amount of the outstanding loan was deducted from the rollover amount. So the loan was paid off when the rollover was made. As a broad example, if you had a 401(k) with $10,000 in it, and had a loan of $1,000 against it, the rollover would be for $9,000. So, your steps are (1) open a Rollover IRA and (2) contact your 401(k) administrator and ask for rollover paperwork.
