What Are The Replacement Screws For The Switch Backplate?

Where On Earth Is This Part?

(Screws For Console Backplate, NOT JOYCONS)

So my Switch is missing 2 screws, one on the top section of the device (the screw hole near the Switch's fan hole) while one screw is missing near the bottom near the charging port. Strangely enough I do not know how these screws went missing, but I will indeed try and purchase a repalcement back for my unit, however I can never find what screws are used at all anywhere on Google, even most Ebay and Amazon serches return with suggestions of Joy-Con replacement screws,which is soemthing I do not need, I need the screws primarily for the back plate of the device. Does anyone know where to get these screws and what screws are used in the back housing of the switch? (and yes the top and bottom more specifically )

That is not for the back-plate of the main device, I don't need screws for the JoyCons....
