Coolant is Dissapearing!!!!!

I was extremely low on radiator coolant so took it in and had a flush done and i have been watching it for 2 days and i have lost about an inch at the resevoir but there is not a drop of fluid under my truck everytime i look and nothing underneath the motor or on the frame or anything?!?!?! where could it be going and why?

any knowledge on this would be greatly appreciated thanks

EGR cooler possibly as well. Gaskets and EGR are under the warranty.

If you have warranty left you should be fine. If the radiator is leaking because of higher pressure made by bad thermostats,etc they'll replace it,etc.
