Pentax FA 80-200/f 2.8 power zoom button

Hi all! In some unclear circustances I've "managed" to loose the button which commands the power zomm on my FA 80-200/2.8 lens (see the attached picture). Fortunately, the zoom is still working properly (however I didn't use that button). By any chance, any of you have a spare one? ... OK, I know this might be a 1 to 1 mil. chance, but do you have any ideea where or to whom should I address for this? I already asked Eric (Pentax Camera service) and Harrow, but no luck.
Thank you for any useful suggestion!

I bought one of these once from KEH, but unfortunately it was broken and I sent it back for repair. Eventually they declared it unrepairable (they actually sent it to Precision) as they couldn't get parts, I think. So presumably they have one sitting around in their repair facility. That's a long shot though. You could probably 3d print something that would work...

This appears to be the same as on the FA* 28-70. See my post

The switch on my 28-70mm just randomly fell of as well after years of sitting in a cabinet. Let me know if you're able to get the parts!
