Book of Mormon | “Signs and Times: Samuel the Lamanite’s Missing Prophecy of the Time of Christ’s Death”

There is a missing prophecy (unwritten in the Book of Mormon at an earlier time) that is found in 3 Nephi 8:
3 Nephi 8:2 And now it came to pass, if there was no mistake made by this man in the reckoning of our time, the *thirty and third year had passed away;
3 And the people began to look with great earnestness for the sign which had been given by the prophet Samuel, the Lamanite, yea, for the time that there should be darkness for the space of three days over the face of the land.

They were looking for the sign of death at a certain time, but in Helaman 12-14, there is no mention of this time:
Healaman 14:20 But behold, as I said unto you concerning another sign, a sign of his death, behold, in that day that he shall suffer death the sun shall be darkened and refuse to give his light unto you; and also the moon and the stars; and there shall be no light upon the face of this land, even from the time that he shall suffer death, for the space of three days, to the time that he shall rise again from the dead.

27 And he said unto me that while the thunder and the lightning lasted, and the tempest, that these things should be, and that darkness should cover the face of the whole earth for the space of three days.
