Default Parking Brake Apparently Stuck

I just bought a 98 F-150 XLT 2WD truck for my son. Yesterday, he came home with what appeared to be a situation in which the parking brake is locked. He swears he did not engage it, but I don't know. In any event, the parking brake seems stuck, and I am wondering how to approach this situation. Thanks much.

A little more info: The rear driver's side wheel is locked up, and there is a terrible clicking noise coming from the driver's front wheel.

Ya know, you may have to take the wheels and drum off to see more. It's very hard to say without actually being there and taking it apart. Jack up the rear end, see if one tire turns or both. Get yer hands in there and feel around for anything loose or jammed front and back.

Easy fix. The caliper was missing a bolt. 31 cents later, all is well.
