My 90 year old parents have a small bathroom. There is water that seems to be coming from under the vanity base. Could the tiolet be leaking between the vinal flooring and subfloor, coming out around the vanity? The sub floor or at least the last layer put down does not go under the vanity. Or, could the drain pipe be leaking inside the wall and be running under the vanity? The space under the sink is dry, and the drain pipe goes back into the wall.

The liquid smells like urine, thus I blamed my father for a while. But mother assures me that it's not dad, he sits.

Am I going to have to crawl under the house??????

I would remove the toilet , check the floor flange, replace the wax gasket with a deep seal type install new quality brass floor flange bolts and replace the water supply and see what happens

You may consider tearing up the vinal floor and to make sure there is no mold growth
