It's there somewhere. There are lots of flat-enough spots that would catch that part long before it reaches the ground. Check around all the pulleys, check around the turbos, check the engine mount arms. Prod around with a magnetic pick up tool. Spray the bay with a power washer if you have one, be mindful of the alternator and electrical connectors. I would pull the underbody covers off, you can reach another dimension searching from beneath the car. Then pull the fan. Subframe if you're mechanically inclined and have a weekend to spare.

I see pumps on ebay for $150-200.

If the two end pieces are the same (I can check when I'm home) you could potentially have a machine shop try to duplicate it.
