Help! BOV Vacuum line came off!

Hi Guys,
As the title says, my bov vacuum line came off. I took my car out for a spin after being snowed/ iced in and noticed no BOV sound. When I pulled over I popped the hood to see if the charge pipe was loose. Low and behold I see the tube dangling. I tried to find where it connected but no luck. Sun was coming down and I had limited light.

I tried looking up charge pipe installs to figure it out, but no luck. I saw one image of this tube connecting to a 3-way but my car doesn't have this.

Then I stumbled on a thread of a some one mentioning the tube went straight to the manifold.

Can any one help with where this line goes, if possible, any pics? At the moment I'm thinking the air box needs to be removed for better access to the manifold.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

thanks,
Jake

Update! Shout to Mike@N54Tuning for helping a brother out. No help from the forum so I shot him a quick email. He responded within minutes. Fantastic service as usual, can't say it enough.

Did you get this fixed? There is a small plastic nipple that sticks out of the intake manifold. It's easy to visualize with the air box removed. Otherwise, it's best felt but sticking one's hand down underneath the air box toward the manifold.

The hose is held on to the nipple by a zip tie. Probably easiest to loosely snare a zip tie over the hose, then slip the hose over the nipple, then slide the (loose) zip tie over the portion of the hose that's over the nipple, then tighten the zip tie down so it's snug. Clip the excess off the tie with a pair of snips, and you're good.
