Need help finding a leak

Ok so I noticed that when I take the truck through an automatic car wash, which I try not to do too often, I seem to have a leak in the roof right near the hanger for a clothes hanger. It seems to be coming in from the top and then running down towards the rear window judging by the wet spot that appears in the headliner. So I'm trying to determine where the leak is. It doesn't leak in rainy weather or when getting washed by low pressure water, i.e. a normal hose. I'm hoping its just an issue with water slipping past a seal somewhere.
Anyone have a leak in that area?
