Shuttle missing a complete tile ?

Nasa have posted a great pic of the Shuttle taken from the space station. On closer examination, it looks like one whole tile is missing from the heatshield. On the upper photo, it's to the right and below the back of the front gear door - a little white dot. When blown up from the original, it looks like the bottom image, which to me looks like a whole tile has gone.
