FM - Phantom MIssing Field in DDR?

In trying to clean up my database, I did a search for "missing field".  However, when I search for it on the layout or the script that the DDR indicates, I can't find it.  I've attached two screen shots -- 1 which shows "missing field"  in a script and 1 which indicates it on a layout.  

Not sure why this works well for "unknown" but not for "missing field".  In scripts, I've looked in the Custom Dialog Box's "Input fields" and even deleted the Dialog box step and readded it.  On layouts, I've tried duplicating the layout and putting it into a different layout form or creating a layout from scratch and putting all fields on the layout, but still can't find the "missing field."  The only time I've noticed these fields are when they are deleted and in a script or when created accidentally in table view.  Any suggestions?

Sometimes a missing field reference can be found in an unused Auto-Enter calculation. However, I would start with the layout. The DDR gives you the exact coordinates of the fields to it should be easy enough to find it. Make a duplicate of the layout and then start deleting sections. Make sure field boundaries are turned on. It could be a merge field or a standard field.

Another easy tip that might help: search for it in Layout Mode, and hit Ctrl-A (Command-A on a Mac) or "Select All" from the Edit menu.  Having every component selected usually helps me hunt for fields that may have gotten buried in another.
