Where can I buy front brakes for a Reid Griffon?

I have a Reid Griffon without a front brake, but I cannot find any websites where I can buy a suitable front brake.
This is because there isn't any specification of which brake I need to buy.
Does anyone know what model brake it is, and a link to somewhere where I can buy it?

From the pics I can find, it seems to have an entirely normal/common caliper brake.
You need to determines what ”reach” you need.
So type ”measuring brake reach” into the search engine of your choice and do your homework.
Or simply read this article:https://www.sheldonbrown.com/calipers.html which should tell you all you need to know about your little project.
If you end up equally confused, but at a higher level, feel free to return with more specific questions.
Tektro brakes are inexpensive and quite decent. Good value for money.

It turns out they are promax rc-452 dual pivot calipers.
It took me a while to figure that out.
How do I close this thread?
