well sounds like the locking mechanism is frozen stuck. the inside of trunks usually have a release pulley so that someone can't get "put in the trunk" see if you can lower the rear seat and gain access into the trunk this is an oldie sonot sure if it is possible but try that and see if there is a manula release inside the trunk

Thanks Bobby
Unfortunatly the germans wanted a secure interior and trunk area because there is no access, it is solid behind the rear seat :-(

Sorry Laura you might have to bring this to a shop, there's really no way of knowing what to do with out being with the car. Sounds like someone might have to get creative, mybe even drill out the lock to get in there.
