Diopter and eye piece gone. HELP

So i have no idea how this happened but after i came back from my last expedition my eye piece AND diopter adjuster were missing from my camera. I have literally no idea how this happened but i can't find the diopter piece anywhere online, but i can find plenty of rubber eye cups.

Any suggestions?

When you say diopter are you meaning the entire sliding adjuster mechanism?
That being said, to my knowledge the eyepieces are interchangeable between models. ie. I ordered a original Pentax magnifier/eyepiece and have been moving it from the K200D throughout the K-5 without issue. Though if you've somehow lost the adjuster mechanism, I'm thinking you're going to have to contact Pentax for a replacement part.

The diopter is gone or the lever that controls it broke off?
