I couldn’t find a Golden Eagle accident that appears to match the circumstances in the AAIB, NTSB, or ASN records. Perhaps registered in some other jurisdiction?

Insurance claim settled sometime between February 2007 and February 2008 – some six or seven years later.

All a bit odd. Another jigsaw piece, and certainly relevant to the discussion as it indicates the company that owns the missing PA46 was on the face of it set-up to run an aircraft hire business.
A little research throws this one up. 363s Annual Return dated 19th January 2000 - under the section "Principal Business Activities" has a hand-written note: "Non scheduled air transport and business & management consultancy." Reading it you can see that "Non-scheduled air transport" from that date is in addition to the other "business activities" of Cool Flourish.
Surely if a "business activity" then "non-scheduled air transport" requires income of some sort. It's not a charity.
