Call dealer and ask would be the first step, check spare area and any other compartment areas this is of course the dealer put it in the vehicle.

At the time of posting the dealer wasn't open yet.... I just dropped my car off. They have no idea about the key. I told them that when they did my warranty work before the tires were removed multiple times so I can only assume that they never of it back from the last service

Unfortunately that's one of those things that gets put down on a service bench and is forgotten about, until the customer needs it. Hopefully they will find it or replace at no charge, painting it in a day-glow color does increase the odds slightly that it will be seen by the tech before the vehicle leaves the shop.

Dealers usually have a kit that has an assortment of wheel lock keys in it so they may not have needed yours.

One old trick is to drive with a hammer a 12 pt socket (one you don't care about) that is a little smaller diameter than the lock nut over top of the locking nut and turn it off that way.
