Coolant leak

As title says, the old 6.0L has sprung a leak. Here is where it get weird though, I can't find it I have looked all over the place and can't see where it is coming from. Oh, BTW, it only leaks when the engine is cold. Once the engine is warm it stops Has anybody had any issues like this? Thank you in advance for any help.

My truck was running hotter than normal. Took it to the dealer and they reported the coolant was low and a small leak in a hose. They changed the hose and topped the coolant. 2 months later I have the same problem again and my warranty just expired.
Both times I did not see where my coolant level was low but they said it was the first time. I really dread taking her in for the second time.
May not be helpful but I did have a similar issue.
