Parking Brake Mounting Bolt Broken

One day I pulled on the parking brake and it pulled up a little more than usual and lo and behold it actually pulled out of the body with bolt intact. I really need to post a picture of this. Should I get someone to weld it back in? The brake is holding but it can't continue on like this.

same thing happened to me on my 96.
what i did was, remove center console, loosen handbrake assembly.
then found a large washer, nut and bolt that fit. i fished a length of dental floss from the interior over the drive shaft to under the car. attached the washer and bolt to the floss pulled it up to the opening and held it with some tension until i could get the bolt started. worked for me.
good luck
