It seems to me that the game can continue as normal and that person's score would simply be discounted when determining a winner.

As in regular chess, players are not allowed to pass. (Although the PwP
rules don't state this anywhere). As soon as the turn comes around to the
missing player, the game is ruined.

Simply skipping the missing player mans that pieces moved into the
missing player's zone will not be moved out, which is a significant change
to the nature of the game.
