Is it leaking from the heater core (Located under the dash board) if so then the water might be in the floorboard of the car

Most of the cooling system is pretty visible by looking under the hood. The only thing out of sight is the water pump, its under the exhaust manifold. If you can get under the vehicle you'll be able to see it. If it's leaking that much coolant you should be able to easily see it flowing out of the pump, or possibly the lower radiator hose. Also check the heater hoses while you're down there.
