Lock Tumbler Question

I have a 1979 AS Sovereign International. The previous owners locked their keys up inside the unit and they had drilled the lock tumbler mechanism to gain entrance. The door latch assembly is is fine shape other than the tumbler is missing. Does anyone know where I can buy just the tumbler and and keys to slide in the round opening opening of my entrance lock? Or is should I remove the door latch and take it to the local locksmith and let his find a fix for it.

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

We had ours go bad; the (mobile) locksmith had a bunch he'd saved: check locally.
