Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! It sounds as if the latch pawl has been rotated to the closed position while the liftgate is open. Just releasing the liftgate won't usually allow the pawl to rotate back to the open position on it's own. What will need to be done is insert a screwdriver into the latch in the area behind the pawl where the striker would be when closed. While releasing the liftgate as you normally would, use a screwdriver to help move the pawl by prying outward, the pawl will pop to the open position and then you can close the liftgate.
