0009594: Merchants die/get frightened/flee, dump trade goods, but still own them (shows on stocks screen, can't interact with)
Manager Edit: Note this is not about the general merchants fleeing and dropping cargo, but about cargo now showing up on the stocks screen that can't be interacted with. You can zoom to the location but nothing is there.

Merchants leave trade goods and do not trade, but game announces their arrival and departure as normal. Trade goods do not change ownership flags because they were not purchased from the missing merchants.
Let the save from the start of summer progress. Merchants may spawn and get scared before leaving goods. The game may still believe they are there and announce their departure as normal later in the season despite their having fled.

Reproduction is variable as the caravan spawns randomly.

The second save has the bugged items, which are on the second row from lower map edge. Zooming to the logs will find them.
