Welcome to Android Central! Are you only keeping these downloaded files in the /Download directory? If so, it's possible some "Smart Cleaner" feature or app is automatically clearing out your Downloads. If the phone came with a Device Maintenance app or menu, look there for a feature like this. Or if you installed an app that has a Smart Cleaner function, get rid of it. If you'd prefer to keep that function, then make a habit of moving downloaded files to some other directory as soon as you download them.
