Engine oil leaks can be very hard to pin point. If it has been leaking for a while, everything is covered in oil but here are a few locations where it could be coming from:

Oil pan gasket and/or oil pan drain bolt plug gasket leaking
Oil pressure sending unit leaking
Valve cover gasket leaking
Engine oil seals leaking

Easiest way to find the leak is to clean the engine of as much oil residue as possible. Once its clean you can then start looking for the cause of the leak.
