icon to create a tex message is gone

in the Message# app, the icon to create a new text message doesn't appear. I can only send to existing contacts or people who have texted me.  How do I get that function back?  How did I lose it?

Look for a red circle with a pencil in it to the bottom right of your message history screen.

You can keep looking for that button all day long it isn't there since the update. I have been looking for the past 45 minutes and I'm very good at my phone and it is not there!

I just wanted to let you know that I uninstalled the app and then reinstalled it and it is now showing up so you might want to give that a try
