Help finding source of oil leak

I have an oil leak and I am not too sure where its coming from. My valley is bone dry, and the high pressure oil plug at the back of the engine is dry as well. Where else could this leak be coming from? I hope the pictures help.

Make a paper towel "Kotex" and slide it under the turbo pedestal maybe....

Run the engine and slide it out after a min or two, see if either side is wet. If not, drive it around some and check again.

Also, here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says
