Finding oil leaks can be very tricky. If you are correct about the belt slinging it around, that would indicate one of the belt driven components, likely the power steering pump but you should have a very noticeable loss of power steering fluid from the reservoir.
Oil runs downhill and then spreads so when looking for leaks you are always looking for the highest point that you find oil. This is why it is rather important to get it all cleaned off first before looking. Sometimes you need to use mirrors to find the actual source of the leak.
When you do find a leak at a high point, that does not mean it was the only leak. This is why you start repairing from the top and continue leaning and watching for other leaks.
