Where have the last to daily reports gone, can't find them anywhere.

They're all there, none have "gone" anywhere.  The troops on Niku are in their second week of work, and there are entries all the way up to today's.  Be sure to refresh your browser's cache (press F5).

If "touch DNA" is actually found to be AE & Fred's, then yes the evidence does establish that they were there on its own merits. IF DNA cannot establish that fact, and the Electra parts are found off the reef, then, YES, we can establish they were "probably " there, as was mentioned on another thread; that the plane could have washed up on the reef after a water landing. Right now, anything is possible, and I hope that they find indentifiable parts of the Electra, and valid DNA from the artifacts that the expedition has collected. That would put to rest the theory that Amelia & Fred were on the island. How they died, would be a totally different matter.

I know TIGHAR has a DNA sample for AE, but what about for FN?  I was thinking that he didn't have any living relatives, but I may be mistaken about that....
