As far as the rear seal leaking... if you can see the front side of the flywheel (the side away from the transmission) look for a characteristic pattern of rays coming from the center of the flywheel. This would indicated oil leaking from the main seal onto the flywheel and being flung outwards by centrifugal force. If that front surface of the flywheel has no evidence of oil like this, the leak is likely elsewhere.

I just added oil before leaving my home to work on that day and the oil pressure was showing 3 (max on gauge).
I did not check the flywheel as you suggested which is a very good idea.
I can see signs of oil even at the flange of starter but not one single sign of oil anywhere from top of the engine.
