S&S Escort Engine/Block Problem

Some of you may know that I am rebuilding a 77 S&S. Today I was breaking down the engine for painting. I found one freeze plug missing. I have never heard the engine run, but supposedly, the engine is less than two years old. Not sure what to do? Would you replace the plug, or just go ahead and break the engine down and have the block checked. Boat came from NC, so freezing could be a possibility. I pulled one valve cover and the rockers and pushrods are clean, so it is possible the engine is "new". Thoughts on how to approach this issue? Next step? I did not want to have to breakdown the engine if possible.
