Not quite sure what you mean but you can navigate your expedition ship until you reached the port space you want to.

Where's MY gold?

I have two ingots in stock. They're not in the Headquarters, they're not at either of the two ports I've built and they're in neither the War Mill (the axe making one, not the cloth making one. Someone really needs to sort that out) nor the Helmsmith. Nor are they anywhere to be seen on the road.

Is vanishing gold a common bug?

perhaps they are into an expedition ship?

or you didn't mention the helmsmithy. or perhaps you simply missed them on the road. or they may be in another warehouse.

we can't track single resources like that. but we never had any report of wares vanishing

A picture is worth a thousand words

and your picture does not show if the gold is in the ship, or or in a helmsmithy, or along the road. have you checked the ship?

If you really can't find your gold anywhere, I'd suggest you saved the game and demolished everything (buildings and roads) while keeping an eye on the stock window. If the stock decreases after destroying something you'll know the gold was there. This way you can't miss anything - only the Headquarters and ship cargo will remain.

Also remember to check all tabs in the port window when checking a port.

It was in one of my ships which seemed to have been loaded for an expedition from the wrong port.

No. The common bug would be that the gold (or other wares) stays forever on a flag after loading a game. (Build 20 and newer)
