Firebird leaking rear brake fluid.

Just found out yesterday that the rear brakes in my 78 dont work. Checked the master cylinder and the rear resovoir is empty. I topped it off a few months ago. Is this common on gen 2 f bodies? Where should i start looking for a leak? Thanks in advance.

There's no visible leaks anywhere, thats the thing. I would thing that you would be able to see if there was a bad line somewhere.
