This is just one of many stories (http://o.seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/health/2012604818_apasjapanmissingcentenarians.html) about how many really really old people seem to be missing in Japan. Some sources are citing a number about equivalent to the size of Reno Nevada. Some of these people (would be) 150 years old.

I highly doubt they are missing. More likely they died and their relatives didn't inform the gov of their deaths.

Agreed, that this is what happened. Guess they didn't want to give up the benefit checks.
