A sketch of Martin's companion is posted with this case summary. He was between 40 and 45 years old in 1991, approximately 6'2 in his cowboy boots, and 200 pounds. He had graying brown hair, a beard and a mustache. He had a tattoo on his arm, a broken nose and decayed or missing teeth.
The man drove a black 1988 Kenworth tractor-trailer with a sleeper cab and a wind spoiler. The trailer was possibly silver or white, and appeared to be old. The man was supposedly from Texas. He was wearing cowboy boots, a black cowboy hat, an armadillo stickpin, and a thick belt with a large oval buckle. He has never been identified. He is not being called a suspect in Martin's case, but is being sought for questioning.
Martin's family believes she met with foul play, because it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and she left all her belongings behind at her apartment. Police also believe foul play was involved in her case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
