    they are not showing up in the media manager

    It sounds like the images were originally deleted from the Media Library, which removes their entry in the database. WordPress is not a file manager, each uploaded images gets a library entry in the database, remove that and there’s no image as far as WordPress is concerned.

    To add those manually uploaded images back into the Media Library, you’ll need to either re-upload them from Media > Add New in the site’s Dashboard, or use a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-from-server/

    Then there’s the peculiar question of why there’s like 5 or more copies of each image

    That’s just WordPress making a variety of sizes to better support responsive images: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/11/10/responsive-images-in-wordpress-4-4/
