The mesh menu is in the Polygons menu set, to perform a boolean make sure all your verts are merged and both meshes are completely intersecting.

it's not the 4th boolean, it can be any boolean.
Type Boolean in the search above and you will find lots of info, Geometry can disappear for a number of reasons during a boolean operation.
