Just imported my first images I have taken with my Mark III, profile is missing. LR does not support this camera yet?

If LR didn't support the camera, you wouldn't be able to import raw files from it. The problem with the "missing profile" is that Adobe currently is not creating camera-matching profiles for Canon cameras that produce raw files in the CR3 format (the EOS R was an exception, as that uses the same sensor as the 5D MkIV, so Adobe are able to re-use the same camera matching profiles that are used on the 5DIV's CR2 raws). It's been a long time now, and still no sign of camera matching profiles for CR3 raw files, so there's clearly an issue somewhere between Adobe and Canon.

The usual Adobe raw profiles should still be available, of course.

But the camera is listed in the Camera Raw file on my C: drive...or are the profiles just icons with no data?

No worries, but just to be clear....in the profile browser in the Develop module, and assuming you have a raw file selected, you should have all the standard Adobe Raw profiles available (Adobe Color/Standard/Landscape, etc.), but you should not see any "camera-matching" profiles available (Camera Standard/Faithful/Neutral/Portrait, etc.).

In "CameraProfiles" there are two sub-folders: "Adobe Standard" will list all the cameras that have raw file support, so will include your 1Dx III. "Camera" will list all the cameras for which "camera-matching" profiles are supplied, so will not include your 1Dx III.
