Multipoint Sliding patio door lock broken

Outside handle with key
My Jen-weld sliding door lock broke. I can’t find this brand to replace it. Any ideas?
I can do it myself if I have the right hardware ( no matter what my husband thinks, lol)
The first thing that you need to know is whether the handle and latch is broken or the lock itself.
The handle and latch is a custom color, and its keyed which makes it hard to find. Most likely, only available from Jeld-Wen.
It would be good to take the handle off completely and try to operate the lock just with a screwdriver blade.
That would rule out which of the two components is bad. I am guessing its the lock because usually a spring breaks inside and the two hasps no longer come out when you try to lock the door.
The lock itself appears to be a available on the Strybuc website but the picture they provide is really small and has very little detail.
