I have quite a few of these in Apache logs piling up every day:

[Mon Jun 09 20:42:58 2014] [error] [client] File does not exist: /home/user/public_html/, referer:

I have over 200k visitors per day but a few of them like a dozen or so are generating the above error. I can't figure out what may be causing it. Checked the html code and it's all good so I ran out of ideas.

seems like wherever you're referencing to and/or jquery.min.js you're missing http:// part.

look for jquery.min.js inside of your code grep -r 'jquery.min.js' . and add http:// in there and i think error will go away.
