I Have A 1999 Ford Escort And The Gear Shifter Won’t Release. Is There A Manual Release For That

Pressing on the brake usually activates the release, but its really cold out right now (below zero), so I wonder if it might be frozen. Is there manual way to release the gear shifter? I cannot get it out of Park right now & I don’t have the owner’s manual (though I’m looking for one online).
