Hello,

The shift cable may have broken or disconnected. Look at the cable on the side of the transmission and see if it moves when someone trys shifting it from park to drive. If it doesnt move then its either broken at the transmission end of the cable or at the shifter handle end. Below is what to look for at the transmission end.
