I have a KitchenAid refrigerator model KSCS25INSS00. I found

I have a KitchenAid refrigerator model KSCS25INSS00. I found water water leaking on the floor from under the freezer side. It wasn't gushing like there was a broken water line, but the puddle (about 1' x 3') . I immediately shut off the water to the refrigerator and began cleaning up the water.I checked the water valve, no leaks there, and I have been monitoring the situation constantly and there is no leak. I'm afraid to leave the refrigerator unattended with the water valve to the refrigerator on.I checked the plastic tray that catches the defrost water about 6 hours latter and it was dry. I don't know if it was dry when the problem happened but I find it hard to believe that if it was full and overflowing that the evaporation designed to remove that water could empty the tray in 6 hours.All this happened in the middle of the night (our dog woke us up, he got extra treats that day).Any ideas of where this water could come from?
