Default Help with 2 pickups loose wire!

Hello!

I ran over an electric guitar that I had to dismantle only for cleaning because it is going further as a memory accesory to someone!
In the process one wire came loose due to my clumsy hands and I do not know where this wire goes!
A little history uppon the thing:

- I suppose since in the pickguard is a supplementary hole, there was a pickup comuter that went broke on functionality and it was remowed, with wires soldered on tzo it beeing soldered afterwards on another functional point in the guitar!

Pics are atached, please tell me where to solder the wire that went from Potmeter to loose

Thak you!

It's probably the earth wire from the bridge, solder it to the earth connection on the pot

Here is how it looks after deep cleaning, more restoration is not coming onto it as it has sentimental value! Here is the diagram I found!
