First thing I would do is clean out the valley real good and let it dry. Then start it up and start looking and feeling for oil.

There are a number of places it could be from. Turbo to pedestal Orings, Pedestal to motor Orings, HPOP lines could have a slight tear, HPOP Orings on each HPOP line, the IPR on the HPOP, the seal between the HPOP and the reservoir, and some of the fittings on the HPOP have Orings that tend to leak eventually.

my turbo pedestal o rings have been leaking a little for some time now. One of these days ill get that 1.0 housing on there and put new orings on there!

The other thing that often leaks is the ebpv actuator.

go here for the orings

Yeah the hard part sometimes is findidng the leak source. I've had the HPOP leak at the fitting and also the breather box on the valve cover at different times.

I agree clean it off real good and a mirror on a stick and a flashlight will be your friend. You can also buy UV Die to add to the oil, this is great if it is a weep. Could be from all areas mentioned as well as your CCV which dumps into the intake. I have seen them saturate the boots so bad they will eventually fill the valley and drip down the back of the engine making you think a rear main is out. If you intake boots look all nasty here is the cure.
