Have you taken the seat apart to inspect the locking mechanism? Maybe there is a broken bolt which seems to be a common failure item.

I'd bet a huge wager you wont find a whole new seat with matching upholstery. If parts fell off go used. If they were riveted you'll need to deal with that or change over your seat cover to a working whole used one that is exactly like yours. Could have been a bench seat or other type??

Rare but sometimes with silly things like this you might find the parts still in the truck or hidden under upholstery or who knows and fix what you can if so,
