does it have a "pass through" in the center of the rear seat?
have you tried cycling the lock cylinder on the trunk a few times to release it, or do you have a release button inside the center console inside the car?
YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE THE LOWER SEAT CUSHION, ACCESS THE SCREWS THERE, AND REMOVE THE SEAT BACK CUSHION. THIS WON'T ALLOW YOU TO CRAWL THROUGH ANYWHERE, BUT WILL GIVE ACCESS HOLES TO USE A WIRE HOOK TO ACCESS THE LATCH RELEASE, THERE IS A SMALL TAB ON THE SIDE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO RELEASE THE LATCH.
