NOT a headgasket. Heater hoses located beneath the intake are most likely leaking. You can't see it because it fills the engine valley then leaks out the back on top of the transmission and some on the exhaust. Most of it exaporates or gets crusty before you'll see it. Water pumps will do the same but those you will usually see the puddle.
