What is it?

When I was removing the throttle body, I found a sensor wire laying in the area. I assumed it plugged into this hole in right side of the plenum. Unfortunately while removing the plenum, the copper wire sticking out of the sensor is missing. I looked inside the plenum and it looks like the exposed wire is not even in the air flow. What is this sensor, can it be bought or can I just add a length of copper wire to it? I can't find it in any diagram and tried to explain it to the tech at Pelican but I got him really confused. Thanks for any help.

I think there is no copper wire as it is a vacuum line - plug it in and you are good.
