Could be a heater hose.

You can usually obtain a free loaner set of fittings, pump, and gauge to test the pressure of the cooling system from a place like autozone. If you cannot locate the problem, fill the system with water, attach the fitting, and pump up the pressure to about ten pounds. You'll be able to locate the leak rather easy then.
