I traveled outside the country on November 5th 2014 after my interview for AOS has been approved on October 29th 2014. I traveled to see my sick father who has passed away during my visit. when I returned on January 1st 2015, the officer stamped my passport with a stamp written on it January 1st 2016 !!, but I didn't see it until I arrived my home, and when I tried to check my I94 online today Jan 5th, I didn't see my arrival record , what should I do now?, please help.
There is no I-94 for permanent residents. As an LPR, you return to the USA form a short trip using your national passport and LPR card or I-551 stamp. Hence that "admitted on" stamp is not an "admission" stamp for immigration law purposes but a day when you entered the USA. It can be confusing but even USCs get this stamp in their passport though they are never applicants for admission in the immigration law sense of the phrase. Consider that stamp a bureaucratic necessity to indicate when you return from a trip abroad.

You seem to indicate that you departed the U.S. after you were granted resident status. If you were indeed granted resident status, then you are not issued a FORM I-94 at the port of entry. CBP merely indicated the entry and return to the U.S. date in your passport.
Legal Permanent Residents do not get I-94s when returning to the country.
