Specialized S-Works M5 HT Disc Hanger Bolt

Specialized S-Works M5 HT Disc, not 100% on the year, probably 2005/2006. Looking for bolt that attaches derailleur hanger to frame. Hanger is fine, bolt has disintegrated. Any suggestions?

A chainring bolt is an M8x1.0 and I expect that's way too big. I'd try an M5x.8 (water bottle cage bolt among many others) as a first quess and go up or down from there. These days hardware stores carry a wide variety of metric bolts and you should be able to find a replacement.
