It seems to disappear after the 1930 census. Was it absorbed by another town?

Probably what was called Mission Township up to 1930 is now called Loma Linda

A township is not necessarily the name of a populated place. Township names are often the name of the voting precinct.

It would help if you identified the names of the persons that lived in that township so they could be traced to the 1940 census. If they had moved, ceased to exist, then the names of other residents could be traced into 1940. I did this just last week in another area and found the current name for the area.

The 1940 Census stills shows Mission Township but also indicates that it is in the unincorporated area called Loma Linda. My dad and grandparents lived on Caroline Street in this township in 1940. The address for Caroline Street is now in San Bernardino with a zip code of 94208.
