Limestone Step Tread Repair


Hey folks!

I'm trying to not have to replace an entire limestone tread on the front steps and hoping that I can just repair it. There is a piece that has cracked off and is no longer attached to the brick stringer. Can I use construction adhesive for to reattach it to the stringer and then fill the crack with concrete patch or mortar? I'm not looking for perfection - rather just a quick fix to hold me over for a few years until I just redo the entire steps altogether.

What do you all think?
