You need to more clearly describe the problem...Your post just isn't clear and doesn't make much sense.

Wow, that's a heck of a problem. Simply re-caulking it will probably lead to more problems. If a lot of water got past the seal there is a very good chance that the subfloor, drywall and the floor joists are being rotted by the water and are soaking enough of it up so you don't actually get a leak. That'll definitely lead to mold and perhaps a structural problem. Simply drying the area out may not be enough.

You may need to consider removal of the shower/tub unit to evaluate the damage before putting a band-aid (caulk) on it.
