Suspect Number 1
The pollen filter (cabin filter) cover is on the passenger side at the bottom of the windscreen. Part of cover is the actual seal with the bottom of the windscreen (passenger side). If it is fitted back without care or if it has been broken you will get water into the passenger side foot-well. This is a common problem that usually results in posts to this group when the owner has taken the car to a Ford dealer for a service.
Alternatively, someone has taken the car for a swim.

500,000 cars were water damaged by the recent hurricanes. One-half are estimated to be headed for the retail market. Do a Carfax search and be suspicious of any car from a Gulf state.
Water from an improperly sealed pollen filter will usually be found on the passenger side only. What happens when the car is run through a car wash? How about the area around the spare tire? Check both the transmission and oil for signs of water contamination. There are numerous articles on the Internet with regard to flooded cars. http://tinyurl.com/befz4
