Using sonar sensor in Gazebo for Pioneer3dx Model

Hello, I am using the pioneer3dx model in Gazebo from and I couldn't find the robot publishing any sonar data. When I type rostopic list while the robot is moving in simulation, the topics that print out are:

/clock /cmd_vel /gazebo/link_states /gazebo/model_states /gazebo/parameter_descriptions /gazebo/parameter_updates /gazebo/set_link_state /gazebo/set_model_state /odom /p3dx/base_pose_ground_truth /p3dx/laser/scan /rosout /rosout_agg /statistics /tf

But when I look through each topic, I do not find any sonar data. I was wondering if I had somehow missed the sonar data, or the topic publishing the sonar? And if I didn't, how do I add sonar sensors to this model? Or is there already a model with the sonar sensors? Thank you so much!
