Historic falcon statues from a pub campaigners are trying to get listed have gone missing.
The stone figures sat atop an entrance to the Iron Duke pub in the North Denes area of Great Yarmouth.
They are the emblem of the town's Lacons Brewery and the falcon is a motif on pubs across the region.
The development comes as inspectors from Historic England are due to visit the as part of the listing bid.
Heritage campaigner Caroline Jones, 49, is leading the charge to preserve the Art Deco pub.
She said: 'It's a really beautiful and rare building. We've lost so many beautiful and important building in Yarmouth and we can't afford to lose anymore.'
She is now asking for help tracing photographs of the pub's interior to help with the case for having it listed.
