I would use a tow dolly to get the front tires off the ground.

Call a towing service with a flatbed. They can pull it up on the bed without the keys.

I scrapped a gmc jimmy recently with no keys and steering locked up. Since it was being scrapped anyways I pulled the wheel as hard as I could to the right and broke it free. If you're desperate try it
