Unknown part pop off?

So I was self servicing my pentax K50, and when I assemble everything, I just realized that this part popped off. Anyone can tell where can I put this? My camera work fine, except it can't be on continuous autofocus (C) so only AF/A or MF.

Probably part of the AF/MF switch. Often times people will move the external part of the switch on the case so it doesn't line up with the part on the chassis. Looks like the internal part fell out. I suggest you look at the threads of DIY repair of the aperture control block failure on the K-50.
