A couple of weeks ago, my tensioner broke clean off. One bolt was still in the block and the other is MIA. Couldn't find it anywhere. Almost looks like one wasn't installed. Either way, I tried a crap ton of bolts that I got at random from the store (8.8s) with no luck and the head of the bolt that I mounted the tensioner with from the previous one is a little ehh so I couldn't get much off of it.

Any advice/sources as to where I can order myself one?

Edit: Not "installed" more like, replaced by whoever worked on it last. I've only owned it for a couple of years and I've been fixing this and that as I've gone along. She runs fine though, no issues but it's only a matter of time until the tensioner pulley gives again...

My first bet for a place to get that specific bolt is either a local Ford dealer, one of the online ones, or at a local auto parts yard and pull it yourself off a car in the yard.

If the bolt broke off part of it will still be in the block, and unless it broke off above the mounting surface may be a bit hard to get out.

No bolt in the block, the bolt that was left was easy to remove.
