There could be a leak in the radiator or the water pump. Or the overflow coolant bottle but that normally won't drain all of the coolant. Fill up the radiator when the car is cold and start the car and keep an eye on it to see where the leak is coming from.

Inspect hoses and generally cooling system after you have warm up engine at operation temperature and stopped. See if steam somewhere comes out .
If cooling system doesnt leaks outside, perhaps engine head gasket is broken. to have an estimate watch if your exhaust is leaking some water or steam when starting engine.

could quite possibly be the water pump. There is a weep hole under the shaft, when the bearings go, the antifreeze leaks out at that point. Try checking w/ motor off using a small mirror to get a look under the water pump. If u see corrosion, or it's wet, get a new pump installed. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0

You need to look closely at the hose connections, freeze plugs, and the water pump. Water pumps are designed so that when the shaft bearing wears out, they leak from a small hole under the pulley shaft. Sometimes they will only leak while the engine is running. Freeze plugs can rust through causing a leak usually from the side of the engine. Hoses can leak from anywhere. You'll probably have to get under the engine to narrow down the possibilities. You may also want to rent a tool to pressurize the cooling system. That might help you to see where the leak is coming from. If you've never changed a water pump or a freeze plug before, you might be better off taking it to a professional. If it's just a hose, you could probably do that yourself. I hope this was helpful. Thanks.
