2000 Ford Focus ZX3 Zetec DOHC Engine Oil Leak

This has been known for a while for my car, but we cannot seem to find the source of the leak. We know that the leak comes from behind the engine block, at the passenger side. My brother looked at the bottom and saw that the highest point at which the oil seems to be leaking is at the oil pan area. Could it be that the gasket needs replacing? He also mentioned that there is an aluminum section that is part of the oil pan that could be cracked we don't know for sure. (I'm not very good with car parts). Can anyone give me suggestions as to where this leak could be coming from? As I said, so far our theory is the oil pan, gasket, and/or the aluminum part above the oil pan. Thank you.
