Shifter problems 2017 F450 4X4

I have a 2017 F450 King Ranch. Today when I came home, I stop at the to get my mail and when i put on the brake to shift into park. The shifer went up (like it was going to park), and it was very easy to move. The transmission never moved from Drive, now it won't move at all and the truck is stuck in drive. I put the parking brake on and switched it off, it won't start or let me move the lever. Does anyone know what may have happened?

I an not sure if if the shifter uses linkage or a cable but It sounds like it came unhooked somewhere.

Sounds like a trip to the dealer. Your truck should be still under warranty but even if it's not it may be something electronic. I don't even think the shifter is connected to the transmission like the old days. it may be some wires that go to the transmission to tell it what gear it is in.
