Missing steering rack bolt?

I was under my car because i'm doing an oil change and i noticed that one of the subframe bolts are missing, i have looked around and found out that it's one of the steering rack bolts. I haven't really noticed any clunking or anything so this was a surprise to say the least, but the thing is i don't understand what this bolt is supposed to tighten to cause there arent any threads inside the hole and when i took a look above the subframe there really isn't anything it bolts on to or is it supposed to just kind of keep the subframe together? (also this is on the passenger side)
Could anybody answer these for me please.
