  1. Resolution Note:

    The 'Player' GameObject gets auto destroyed because it has a TrailRenderer component with 'Autodestruct' = true. To fix this issue you need to move the TrailRenderer component to another gameobject or disable the 'Autodestruct' property.

    The MissingReferenceException is thrown because the CharacterMovement script references the Player GameObject and accesses it without checking for null first.
