Analytics Code

I'm stumped.  I requested a developer of a website to add Google Analytics to a site, which is static and not WordPress or other content system.  Gave him the UA # as well as the full code.  

 

He informed the site already had Google Analytics and granted me access to a property in Google Analytics account.  There is data in the analytics account.  However, when I search the live website for the analytics code or UA, the code is not visible.  The site is westportnorfolk.com and there is no code seen in the source code.

 

What am I missing here?  Every site I've ever done has Google Analytics code and is visible when viewing the source code.  Can a site be gathering data for Google Analytics and not have the analytics code visible in the "view source"?

Should be fine.. the code can be setup, configured and installed in a number of ways.
Google cant take every different scenario into account, so gives instructions for a recommended default method which should pretty much work in nearly all instances without issues.
