US President has misplaced nuclear codes - contigency plans?

I was kind of surprised to read this:

Without giving away any national secrets I assume there are some sort of contigency plans in place in case the president can't access the authorisation codes for whatever reason? Would it be treated in the same manner as if the president had been killed or incapacitated and the authorisation pass to the next lowest level in the chain of command?

There was a recent thread which mentioned that President Reagan's code card was found inside his sock after he was being treated after an assassination attempt, if you ask me that's a pretty good place to keep something as important as that!

Don't need answer fast!
