What happened to my OBD2 Port?!

Hi everyone - I am stumped.

I went to locate my OBD2 port on a 2009 Saturn Astra and it’s missing - see here:

It should be sticking out here like in this picture:

What are my steps to figuring out where it is? I bought my car used, could it have been relocated? Where are common places to relocate an OBD port?

It should be below the steering column

It’s probably behind that metal piece somewhere. What happens is that people plug in a scanner, and then they whack the scanner with their leg getting in and out of the car, which breaks the plastic clips holding the plug in the metal port.

Could it be at the end of the wire thqtloops over the stamped metal piece? I assume the top picture is your car, and the bottom is what it is supposed to look like.
