It is reported that nearly 20 kg of natural Uranium is unaccounted for. I bet it will be found when the accounting is gone over. I wouldn't lose sleep over it. U235, the bomb material, constitutes just 0.072% of natural Uranium, which means that 1 kg of 90% enriched Uranium requires 125 kg of natural Uranium if every last atom of U235 will be used (perfect efficiency). In other words, the missing Uranium can at best yield 160 grams of bomb grade Uranium. Very much less than what it will take to build a bomb. (Little Man of Hiroshima fame used 64 kg.) I hope to prevent mass hysteria generated by major demagogues...
