Default Varscan2 multi-variant samples VCF output with empty sample call FORMAT column?


I have Varscan2 generated multi-sample (three samples total) variant VCF file.
I ran Varscan2 on default settings.

For few variants, there is no variant call FORMAT string (e.g., "0/1:2:11:." ) for the third sample, it is completely empty; however for the first two samples there is a variant FORMAT string.

Does anyone know what is the reason for an empty FORMAT specific to a sample in Varscan2 output? is it the read depth?

Thank you.
