Can A Needle Of Lantus Pen If Dropped Around Cause Any Problems ?

I loaded the needle in my Lantus pen and when I did the test, nothing came out. So I tried it again and nothing came out. I removed it as suggested and put in a new needle. It worked just fine. I checked the cap in the first one I tried and noticed the needle was not in there. Do you think it is possible this one was manufactured without a needle? If not, I have lost or dropped this needle somewhere around here and have a real problem because I cannot find it.
