How to use the default language when the entry does not have the requested language

I am using strapi-plugin-i18n.
I have locales 'en', 'fr', 'de'.
I have records in the database:

_id: someId1,
name: 'name 1',
locale: 'en',
localizations: [...]
_id: someId2,
name: 'name 2',
locale: 'fr,
localizations: [...]


const res = await strapi
       .query ('somemodel')
       .model.find ({locale}, [
       .lean ();

If I make a request when locale = en, I get an entry with that locale.

But when I make a query with locale = de, I won’t find any entry.

How can I do that, when a locale for which there is no entry, the entry is returned as for the default locale 'en'?
