"To go missing" is also a diplomatic way to say "to be stolen".

Things around here have a way of going missing.

"To turn up missing" sounds odd to me. I'd double-check the source. "To turn up" often means the opposite: to be found, reappear, etc.

Two girls went missing Friday night. They turned up on Saturday morning at a friend's house.
I heard your car was stolen. Did it ever turn up?
