On 12/31/03 it was determined that a (1) tritium exit sign was missing from Bldg. 193 at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico. The sign was last observed the day before on 12/30/03. The missing sign is a Betalux-E, S/N 191736, containing a 20 curie tritium source. To date, three (3) exit signs have been reported missing during the on-going base renovation (see EN #40407). Efforts to locate the signs continue.

The licensee is amending the original report to show that the last inventory of the exit sign was in May 2003 and not 12/30. The sign was discovered missing on 12/30 and reported to the USAF on 12/31/03. Notified R1DO(Noggle), R4DO(Runyan), and NMSS(Hickey).
