Some claims have just started popping up on social media that a Japanese F35 may have gone missing from radar over the Pacific. Still far too early to know what has happened yet?

WE CAN'T LET THE CHINESE GET IT.
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Air Self-Defence Force said on Tuesday that an F-35 fighter jet disappeared from radar as it was flying over the Pacific Ocean. The jet was flying some 135 km (84 miles) east of northern Japan at about 7:27 p.m. (1027 GMT) when it dropped off radar, the military said.

North Korea maybe?? Would be a huge coup for them to have one of Lockheeds finest spirited away to inspect and "reverse engineer"(lol, say that with a straight face!)it at leisure. By 2035 they may have gotten to the cardboard mockup stage...
Still, hope the pilot is ok, most importantly.
