She done ended up where we can't find her



Is this grammatically correct?
You see "_____ went missing" in the news all the time, but it sounds wrong to me.
Missing isn't somewhere you can go.
Would 'became' work better, as in "the climbers became missing" ?
I could see "the climbers became tingly" or the "climbers went up", but "missing" just sounds weird.

Whenever a person posts about grammar, their own post is inevitably subject to scrutiny.
Those poor commas never saw me coming.
