We use to take them off at the dealer since there were so many taken off the lot. Check with your dealer, they might have the same practice. Sucks!

Thanks everyone for the info. I didn't notice any scuffed paint from the tire being there in the first place but I also didn't look too closely. I was more shocked to see it missing plus it was starting to get dark. I'll get a better look in the morning and be calling my dealer.

if someone stole it, they would NEVER wind the cable back up
snatch & grab in hurry
dealer or factory just forgot to put it on

I forgot who said it, but as "they" said, contact the dealer....they might have taken it off for security reasons, or (I doubt this one, but..) maybe it came from factory like that??? Either way, they might help you out with finding another, or supplying you with one at no cost to you.

Yea it doesn't look like there ever was one there.
A little off topic, the local Ford dealer in my town had 16 sets of wheels removed off their trucks and suvs one weekend. It happened on either a Saturday or Sunday evening and wasn't discovered till Monday morning.
The thieves came in with wooden blocks to set the trucks down on the rotors, the dealership is on a major highway that runs thru town nobody saw anything. Seen a story on Houston TV station reported there was organized group that hit several dealerships.
Evidently there's a market for high end Ford factory wheels.

So I talked to my sales guy and sure enough, they forgot to put the spare back on the truck when we purchased it. They take it off so it won't get stolen.
