Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.
Have you visually inspected this area to see the oil coming from the cam seals?
I agree that is the likely source with this new info. A tech would use brake cleaner to get the engine completely dry of all external oil leaks, then they would add dye and run the engine about 100 miles then use a UV light to find the source of the oil leak.
