You hand brake is cable powered so there are no fluids to freeze. But your cable could have broke or your rear calipers could have seized. Only thing to do is take your rear wheels off and look at what could go wrong.
The cables pull these lever's on the calipers, they might stuck so give'm a good wack with a hammer.
