I can confirm this. This is probably because we haven't found the corpses yet, if we found the corpse, it'd probably become deceased.

I can also confirm that HFS creatures are coming up too, when I haven't reached HFS either.

Also, special thing to note, some birds are just spontaneously quitting flying in mid-flight, leading to their deaths.

I killed a dingo on a fresh embark and it shows up as "missing" as well, so I don't think it's related to finding the corpse.
2014-07-07 20:16   
Can also confirm. Despite not encountering any caverns or caves, I have a Cave Dragon listed as missing in my embark

The midflight deaths are covered by 0006545.

I can confirm, I have a number of kea and crundles (the kea I mostly killed) listing as missing, havent reached the caverns.
2014-07-08 08:17   
I have a few Snow Brutes listed as missing, well before a basic outpost is established, let alone HFS breached.

I had a troglodyte and a Troll in my fort, turns out they were killed by antpeople. Isn't specific to unseen animals either, a zombie and echidna my militia killed in a different fort are missing as well.

My militia just killed a human pikeman. Despite the fact that the death was well-witnessed, the pikeman is listed as "missing". The only creatures listed as deceased are the animals I've butchered.

I think that there are two separate issues here. I suggest changing the bug title/summary.
