Have you checked the linkage that connect your shifter to the transmission? that might be broken, worst case your transmission needs to be rebuilt.

No I haven't where would the linkage be located at

Linkage is located on your car at the top of the transmission it will be a simple cable and it will connect to an arm at the top of the transmission, imattached a picture of a broken linkage give you an example
