oil filler cap - should have an 0 ring?

I have a bit of a situation here. I drained oil on a 2013 forester 2.5 ? During the change, I inadvertently knocked the oil filler cap to the ground. It ping ponged about and eventually settled 10 feet away. When I picked it up, it lacked the 0 ring . I think it had an 0 ring. It should have an 0 ring, right ?

Check and see if the O ring may have stuck to the engine when you removed the cap. Had that happen once on a Honda.

Yes, try to account for that missing oil ring. It may have gotten hard and brittle after years of use and that is when they cause problems.

I searched for it but was unsuccessful. Meanwhile, we needed to use the car, so my chances of finding it are dwindling. I will get some sort of replacement today. Thank you all for the help

OOPs - Just found it. It went the opposite direction as the cap. Many thanks
