Where's the hood release?

Can someone please show me where the 'hood release' is located on a 2012 SLK250?

The owners manual would be an odd place to store the hood release.

Last time I opened any of my owners manuals I found the Expired M.O.T Certificate, not a good thing to find when you're 300 miles from home

Page 115 of the owner's manual, do not pull the red engine eject handle under the steering wheel. It's in bold!
