Why can't I find a Generic PCL printer driver on CUPS

I have a printer that only works using a PCL/6 driver. In the browser based CUPS manager, one of the options for Printer model always used to be 'Generic'. In there I would find PCL drivers. It (Generic) isn't there anymore. I have downloaded about every printer related file I can find in the Debian repos, and still no Generic.

Anyone have an idea how I can get that back?
