How to find support beam on the second floor

I'm going to buy a small safe (about 24"x24"x12") and anchor it in one bedroom's closet. The room is on the second floor. The floor is not concrete. It's tile floor with plywood under.

Sorry if the question is not about home improvement. If it's not appropriated, MOD please delete it.

Thank You

Are you thinking you need it over a beam/support wall because of the weight?
Or are you asking how to find a floor joist?

Also make sure of it's measurements and that it will fit inside the closet.
Floor joists so I can bolt the safe to. The safe only about 100 lbs. We have walking closet so the size is not a problem.
