Car went kaput on freeway... help please

So I've been working on cars for half my life so usually it's pretty easy for me to spot what went wrong with one of my vehicles. Yesterday I was driving down the freeway when I heard a pop followed by what sounded like an exhaust leak. Roughly 10-15 seconds later the low oil pressure light came on. Naturally I killed the car and coasted it off the freeway to prevent any more damage to it. I checked the oil and in fact it did not have any oil. Or at least it was more than 2 quarts low. I did the oil change a couple thousand miles ago but it doesn't burn oil so this was my first red flag. Yes I do check it regularly because my ranger currently eats oil so i'm always curious. Examining the underside of the car we found zero oil leaks. I mean the damn thing is spotless under there. I want to know where all this oil went. I haven't had time yet to do a full inspection, which i'm dreading at the moment, but was wondering if anyone has ever heard or experienced this issue before. I've looked through the forums a bit and currently have found nothing on this issue.

2010 Ford Focus SEL 2.0L with 73xxx original miles.
It's also a CA PZEV Model if that makes a difference to anyone.

Thanks in advance.
