They Are Not Stored in WhatsApp Servers:

When you lose the important messages, you might think about getting in touch with the customer support team of WhatsApp to get their help in retrieving the data. But, the thing to remember here is that they will not be in a position to help you as WhatsApp does not store the messages of their customers to their servers.
