156 Brakes Gone

Just bought a cheap 2003 JTS 156. On the way home I noticed the brakes were extremely spongy and didn't stop well. I got the car home and put some pressure on the brake pedal to try and press out any air in the lines. However, to my surprise it floor dipped to the floor and has no resistance. Brakes don't work at all now, and there is no brake fluid on the reservoir. No clear signs of leaks, but it was dark.

Any help here guys, most obvious failure points?

The solid brake pipes on the front just after they curve behind the chassis rail.
