Default Missing part of my jack in my sti?

I have the jack but not the thin metal rod used to crank it. Is it hiding somewhere in my trunk or should it be obvious? I got the car new so it should be there.

Go lift up the piece of wood covering the spare tire and look what is attached to the bottom of it.

My 03 wrx didn't come with any jacking tools or a spare tire. It's a shame I didn't look for them until a couple of years after I bought the car.

Just put it on the lug nut so that the bar is horizontal and then stomp on the end of it.

One of my coworkers did this and sprained an ankle. So she stomped on it with the other foot ... and broke her foot. Be careful out there.
