check under the car for any puddles, the brake lines could be rusted/old and be leaking

most likely the master cylinder is gone. See no leaks? The fluid may have gone into the booster.

like the above answers i would suggest looking at the lines to make sure nothing is broken or cracked. if not the master cylinder has probably gone out. check the fire wall behind and below the master cylinder for any evidence of a leak. if you dont see any leaks it is possible the fluid was just used through use and got low. bleed the brakes from the passenger rear to the driver rear to the passenger front and last the driver side. if that doesnt solve the problem it will defiantly be the master cylinder and can be replaced fairly cheap.
