Wanted – have you seen this MAC address: f8:e0:79:af:57:eb? German cops appeal for logs in bomb probe

It doesn't matter if the device has been disposed of, that's not what they are after, neither does it matter if the mac address is forged. As the article states they want to try and recover cctv footage linked to the use of the mac address, for instance pictures of everyone entering a cafe just prior to it connecting to the cafe's wifi, hence publicising it isn't an issue. Slim chance but better than no chance.
