How complete are the transcribed ship manifests in Ancestry's Immigration Collection?

Totally frustrated at this point!

I have found that an ancestor of mine traveled aboard the vessel "Plutarch" from Liverpool to New York bet. 1855 - 1857. (This info from the New York Emigrant Savings Bank Records also available at Ancestry.com)

My research shows that this particular ship was not even in service until 1856 so that 1855 date is clearly wrong BUT even though I have checked EVERY manifest for the "Plutarch" I cannot find my ancestor on any of them.

Realizing that it could be a transcription error, I even went the route of checking EVERY page of EVERY actual manifest and still came up empty.

Can anyone advise if EVERY extant manifest has been transcribed and included in this database?

Thanks!
Kathy
