There is no other fix at the moment for this glitch apart from waiting until the developers solve the issue. Going through the forums may provide you with a faster time in getting it fixed but there is no guarantee. The potential faster result time is because the players who provide their names will likely have developers looking into the exact cause of the issue — allowing a full fix to be created.

However, it could be worthwhile relaunching the game and then logging into the servers again. Afterward, check if your items are still missing.
