I would agree. From your desciption, a leaking heater matrix - or connections thereto is a prime suspect. Any "sweet" smell to the wet stuff in the footwells ? If so, it's engine coolant and the only way that can enter the interior is via the heater assy.

When you say empty do you mean just the header tank or the whole system?
