Locating basement shower drain


I have punched a hole in my basement floor. My hole located the boxed in area by the mason but the pipe was not there. Any idea on how deep it maybe or is it in another location?

it could be vertical or horizontal. Dig around the side of the box too.

Normally the pipe is near the edge of the box. That allows for enough room to have a p-trap inside of the box.
