Maybe some linkage problem?

Yea, sounds like the shifter is in park, but the linkage/trans stopped at Reverse.

Did you try and move it back and forth to see if you can at least get it into N or D to get to a repair shop vs being flat bed towed ?

Will putting the 4WD lever into N allow you to move the vehicle. Then try moving the shifter out of P or R which ever it is in.
