It was 1979. There would have been no reason for the police to search for hairs or fibers belonging to Martin Allen at the time because DNA profiling
did not yet exist and would not be invented until 1984.
The lack of fingerprints could also be explained. At the time of his disappearance, Martin Allen was barely 15. During puberty, the body begins
producing waxy oils in the fingers which leave long lasting latent prints when you touch something. These oils are usually always present in your
fingerprints by age 16-17 when puberty ends. In 1995, researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory discovered that the latent fingerprints of children
who have not yet fully developed these waxy oils will only last a few hours before evaporating.
But where does the lack of fingerprints claim come from? And why would the police need his fingerprints?
That said, people disappear without a trace all the time. My speculation is that Martin Allen was taken somewhere by a pedophile where he was raped
and murdered. The body could have ended up anywhere. Buried in some unsuspecting back yard or in the woods. Burned. Encased in concrete. Squirreled
away in a steamer trunk in somebody's attic or basement. Tossed out to sea. Fed to pigs. You never know.
