Where I can get that capacitor from?

I'd check with places like Mouser.com or Digikey.com. Of course there are plenty of others. Just a matter of looking around

Nothing in there. No idea where to look for it.

Check for some with a lightly higher value. You can use some that have higher values, just never lower. A Sanyo 11TJSF62MAIG would be a perfect match. Not easy to find in small quantities. You may have to scrounge on dead circuit boards etc.

Vilson, that is C7540 which is a 62UF 11V 20% Tantalum - Polymer capacitor in a Case-B2S-1 package. You will have to of course solder the replacement back on. Biggest issue here is why it got damage. usually caused by a short circuit, so you will have to determine the cause of it.
