Default Mysterious AC Leak

Ok from the beginning. Got the car in February and the AC worked wonderfully. After a couple months it stopped working. I check pressures first off and realized I was empty. Recharged the system with R134 and UV dye. waited and about a few days after it was empty again. Grabbed the UV light and went over EVERY single line, connection, and hardline to rubber line union. Not a single hint of a leak anywhere.

I figured since I saw no leak it must be the evaporator... well I just replaced it and when I pulled the out evaporator out... no leak there either so that's over $100 that didn't need to be spent.

pulled the grill off and looked over the condenser and dryer too but no leak there either.

Does anyone know where else it could be leaking that wouldn't let any UV dye out??
