Surface/flush mount deadbolt question

Hi, I have an older Ideal Security flush/surface mounted deadbolt on an exterior door. I need to remove it but cannot find any exterior screws, slots or holes to release a cover or any other method to get it off. It is keyed both sides and i do have a key.
See the picture.
ANY ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I got this second hand, so can't swear by it, but there's a small slot or hole next to the inside keyway that, at some point during key rotation, opens up to allow a poke tool to press a release pin that allows the inner turn-knob to come off.

That may in turn, allow the lock's decorative cover to come off, revealing the screws.

Let us know if that's the trick.

Talking Got it....

Thanks for that response. You are dead on correct.
There is a tiny (i mean tiny) slot just under and at the right corner of the inside keyhole. When i insert the key and turn it to open, a cover slides to reveal a slotted hole. I inserted the smallest hex key i had and pushed in.....the round cover popped off to reveal screws.The rest was easy.
Thanks again !
