Vanishing Oil Help!

So right around 5000 miles since my last oil change the oil light in my '99 lude started blinking and sure enough when I checked the dipstick it was not even at a readable level. Added a couple quarts took it in and was diagnosed with a series of leaks. Got it fixed, took it back 2 weeks later at their request to make sure it was all good. Mechanic claimed he saw no more leaks.

Fast forward to another 5000 miles and the same thing happened! Flashing oil light, almost empty oil level. I know I should have been checking it periodically and I certainly will from now on, but my question is, where is this oil going? I do not see any drip.

I have heard it could be leaking into the transmission fluid but that is still a reddish color and the level is not high enough to indicate 4 quarts of oil have leaked into it. I don't really smell any burning either... I'm taking it in this coming Friday, but if anyone has any ideas I can look into before that I'm all ears.
