Looks like Go Quest is leaving the port: https://www.vesselfinder.com/?imo=1155515

Fairing recovery is a go?

I went by the port this evening.... Go Quest is moored at her normal berth by Fishlips... Go Searcher on the other hand was nowhere to be seen.

Last info from Go Searcher didn't place her near Fishlips. It was from 5:17pm Friday - suspiciously like knock-off time - over at the western end of the dock that OCISLY is moored to - a fair way from any other SpaceX vessel. Can you confirm that she is not tied up on the far side of the canal?

I can confirm Searcher wasn't by OCISLY.

Sounds like Searcher snuck out and caught a (flying) fish. From the NROL-76 update thread:

I have confirmation that one-half of the fairing was recovered via parachute. My message said it was recovered from the water, intact.

Go Searcher never came back on AIS, but is now back in port.  Go Quest was in-and-out yesterday, presumably to make room for Go Searcher to dock alongside.  They're visible now on The Webcam Which Must Not Be Named.

As mentioned in the other thread, the SES-10 fairing is still at the port by the Spacehab building.  Perhaps the NROL fairing is as well?
