HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just online and saw your question

Your choices are limited on this

You can go to your dealer and see if they have the key code on file and have them cut a new one for you

Drill out the trunk lock

Drill a large hole in the metal rear seat cross support frame and use a coathanger to fish the keys out thru it
