FYI, the module is actually named "ehci-hcd".  (Note the difference between dash ("-") and underbar ("_").)  Modprobe is agnostic about dash vs. underbar (you can use either one), but (obviously) a file system find is not.

Try looking again.  You should be able to find the module (if it exists) in approximately this location:

/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/usb/host/
