My home folder is missing after I run this command

sudo mv -t /usr/local/src ~/

How can I recover this?

Basically you moved your home dir to /usr/local/src .. just need to move it back:

$myuser="my_user_name"
sudo mv -t /ur/local/src/$myuser /home/ && chown -R $myuser:myuser ~

Unless it actually moved to root user home dir and you want:

$myuser="my_user_name"
sudo mv -t /ur/local/src/$myuser / && chown -R $myuser:myuser ~
