Tutankamun: Mystery of missing manhood

Is King Tutankamun's penis missing? It seems that Jo Marchant, who was researching the possibility that Tut suffered from Antley-Bixler syndrome (which lends physical effects like elongated skulls and "even under-developed genitalia"), discovered that, lo and behold, Tut's genitalia was not there at all. But it was there in 1922, and even in 2006, although it had become detached in that period of time.
