Thank you! 
I did start by making one betafit (or glm, both work ok) estimation of the whole sample and I was intending to simply use the whole predicted values series for further analysis. However, I am not sure if I can provide relevant enough confidence intervals for my missing values to do some further sensitivity analysis...
