Default Where is my power steering fluid going?

I have a 96 Camry and about every 2 months I have to add power steering
fluid. I park in the garage and there is no fluid on the floor. Any help is
appreciated.

Start the car in the garage and let it warm up (with the doors open).
Then turn the wheels left until they lock and hold in this position
couple of seconds. Then turn them right until they lock and hold for
another couple of seconds. Turning the wheels to their maximum
makes the maximum pressure in your power steering system.
Repeat this routing3-4 times and you should see the fluid on the floor.
