I don't quite understand your question.

Are you asking for a tool that crawls your internal website and finds links to missing pages?

There are quite a few tools out there. Try the following google searches:

link checker
link varifier
website link verifier
website link crawler

I'm also working on one myself. currently in alpha stage...
