Make sure the wheel is not turned to much one way or the other if it is pull on the wheel in the direction it is turning to try to help release it. If this doesn't help there could be an issue with the shifter itself, or with the shifter cable, you'll want to find out if it is an adjustable cable or not.

The brake switch can sometimes control the release of the shifter. check the brake switch which is usually mounted to the brake lever under the dash.
