    You can draw one with the line tool. That's probably the easiest method.

    Or find a gif of one on the net and download it, open it in a new window, use magnetic lasso to select it without the background, copy it, paste it into your image as a new layer. You can then size it and move it as required.

    That way's definitely the easiest.
