Furnace Filter -- Where is it??!!

I have a relatively older furnace in my newly purchased home. It is a McDonaldaire furnace. I want to replace the filter but I can not find one where the filters normally are. Can anyone help me by telling where the filter is located? Thanks in advance for any help.

Usually they are located where the cold air return enters the furnace. Since you just bought the house, it's a good possibility that the previous owner removed it and did not replace it.

Furnace Filter

Thanks for your input. I have searched around the entire furnace unit and there is no space for a filter to go like in my previous furnaces. On those there was a slit right next to the main unit where the filter slipped in. (a 20x20 filter). On this one there is no gap anywhere. I don't know where to look for it.

Thanks again for the help.

Ours fits into the access door (top part is the burner access, lower part is the cold air intake access). It was NOT obvious at all, there isn't even a clip. You just fit the filter onto the door.

If you only have one return. It might be in the grill.
