Unless the leak is large enough that refrigerant is just blowing out or somewhere obvious and all at once, the system has to be recharged with a dye installed with it. The dye will leak out with the refrigerant and be visible in a fluorescent green / yellow color under black light. Find the dye glowing and you found the leak.
