Venting basement bathroom??

Hi all..I have done an extensive search and just can't find an answer to what I am after. Hopefully I will be able to explain this clearly. Anyway, I am in the planning phase of finishing off my basement..just trying to get an overall layout. A question that I have is how to vent the half bath. As far as I can tell there is a "rough in" for a half bath. There is a capped 4 inch pvc pipe (toilet drain?) extending about 10 inches above the concrete floor, and a capped 2 inch pvc pipe (sink drain?) as well. Also, the main waste drain (3 inch?) from the above floors comes down about 4 ft from stubs and goes into the concrete floor. All that I can guess is that the roughed in drains connect with the main waste pipe somewhere beneath the concrete and then out to the septic. The concern that I have is that there is not a vent pipe that goes from the basement up to the roof?? Is this somehow vented using the main waste pipe (which is vented at a few points on the floors above)? There is another half bath just above the proposed basement bathroom which is vented (2 inch pipe) to the roof. I will post a few pics shortly.
Thanks in advance for any comment/suggestions!

If you run the sink vent up and connect to the upper bathroom you should be venting the toilet at the same time.
Have you pulled the insulation down in the ceiling joist to look for a capped pipe?
