And I think I have also adequately explained the solution based on having experienced this problem and many other variations.

If you don't want to go through Find Missing Folder for each folder, these are the tools that you can use in combination:
  • Show Parent Folder
  • Either Find Missing Folder on the parent, which automatically fixes its children
  • Or Update Folder Location on the parent, which automatically fixes its children
  • Generally accept any Merge message
  • Avoid Folder Synchronize as it can completely remove photos from the catalogue and/or lose adjustments and metadata
  • At the end, run Find Missing Photos

There is no right-click option for finding a missing folder with the parent folder.

Are you saying that the operation using update folder location from the parent folder is to choose one of the "child" folders within that parent folder that was moved to it but which does not yet show up in that parent folder in the catalog, and that will fix all other such "children" within that parent folder?
