Disappearing brake fluid issue?

Ok i have a fluid problem and the problem is it just disappears. I am not seeing any signs of leakage from the tires or anything along the brake lines. Any ideas?

Then if for sure there are no visible leaks I would also assume what Dreamstang said. usually its the master cylinder that's bad the booster ”should” be ok. If it is leaking into the booster it's possible you could see smoke from the exhaust as the vacuum runs to the intake.

Alright I will definitely take that off and check it out. I haven't drove it to even see if the exhaust was smoking.

Replaced my master cylinder and have no more disappearing fluid. Courtesy of www.rockauto.com if I can't find a part at a store I go there and i also go there to check prices.

Thanks for all the help on this issue guys!!
