I can’t find a Lightroom lens profile for this lens. It is not listed but how can I either make one now that the Adobe creator is no longer available or would there be anywhere else to get one

I still see the profile. Did Adobe remove it somehow?

These are the only Signs lenses listed. Is yours an ART lens ? I have a 12-24  non art which is listed and is OK

OP may be looking at a JPG instead of a raw. The Profile is file-specific.

Those are the lens profiles available for non-raw files (JPEG, TIFF). Select a CR2 raw file and you will see three different model Sigma DG HSM 50 mm 1.4 lenses listed.

Hi Thanks I have now tried raw and it's there as you mentioned. It's interesting that profiles for canon lenses are available for jpeg files. What's the reason behind this? I mainly use jpeg

For JPEGs most current Canon cameras have the ability to correct distortion, vignetting, and in some also chromatic aberration. Not sure this is applied when using non-Canon lenses such as the mentioned Sigma lens.

When shooting with Canon lenses the LR JPEG profiles allow you to turn off those corrections in-camera and then choose the 'Amount' of Distortion and Vignetting correction desired. I generally apply Amount 0 Distortion and 50-75 Vignetting. There's lots' of reasons to NOT fully correct these aberrations. Example: https://forums.adobe.com/message/5655995#5655995

My EOS R does indeed have Lens Aberration correction and my lens is recognised. I have peripheral illumination& Distortion correction on but digital lens optimiser says cannot correct-no data As you probably can tell I am new to all this !

The Canon EOS R uses "built-in" lens profiles. It's possible the lens and perhaps camera need a firmware update.
