35. The lack of complete documentation does not lead inexorably

to the conclusion that the missing children have been trafficked. It is equally possible that their whereabouts are unknown because CPB and other authorities did a shitty job of record-keeping and simply failed to keep track of them through negligence and incompetence. It's conceivable that some might have been kidnapped or trafficked, but the simple absence of records isn't proof, or even evidence, of that. Of course the children need to be located so they can be reunited with their families, but it's a mistake to automatically attribute to intentional wrongdoing that which can be explained by incompetence. That's where conspiracy theories come from, and without better evidence than just the lack of records, that's all this is.
