What if you zoom in on them?
The Lock icon still does not show up, even when I zoom up to 1600%. However I dentine that once I zoomed to 200% or larger, that when I move my pointer over the frame to the location where the lock icon should be, the pointer changes to the standard Unlock pointer, and then unlocks the object when I click at that location.
Zooming to 200% and then unlocking does not solve the visibility problem, but it certainly is much faster and easier than going to the Layers window. Thank you.
Top menu bar, go to View > click Overprint Preview (it should be off).
The locks should now show up on locked items.

I had the same problem, but I fixed it by going to View > Extras > Show Frame Edges. Now I can click on the little lock to unlock items instead of having to go to the layer panel!
