    No one, I don't think, is absolutely sure of facts: but I read that the scientists supervising the Car Park King's dig have theorized that Richard III's feet and lower legbones had been lost as an artifact of the various demolitions and constructions on the former Grayfriars site over the centuries. Apparently, some sort of knowledge that Richard III has been buried (somewhere) there had been preserved for quite a long time (there had been a memorial there in the 17th Century in a garden of a house that had been built later), but the exact location of the grave was lost until 2012.
