+1 to freewheeler's comments. If the dowel is not under one of the caps I think it's more likely in the cylinder head, in amongst the cams and oil, rather than down in lower end of the engine as the only way down there is on the right hand side where the chain runs. You might also look in the spark plug holes. You have my sympathy; it gives you a sick feeling, doesn't it?
