No power to outlet and switch

I’ve been pondering this for a few weeks. So i have an outlet box with two wires-the feed wire and another 14/2 going directly to a light switch. The light switch is the end of the run having only a 2 wire. I have no power to the light switch nor the outlet. Curcuit is good having checked n renutted all wires in boxes i believe the feed wire from the dead outlet is running to. Anything to do with it possibly being switch loop having the hot from the feed spliced in with neutral of switch wire? Pic attached. Also the outlet has been replaced being that it was older n no longer is backstabbed..Thanks

If this outlet that you replaced was back stabbed, it's a good chance that everything feeding this is also back stabbed. Keep checking other boxes.
