I agree with Colby. This is most likely a shifter adjustment issue. I am attaching the process below on how to adjust the shifter and replace the cable/linkage if you are not able to adjust it to correct this.
Maybe get a video of what the vehicle is doing and that will help with any other ideas.
Do you have any grinding in the recent past when going into first? Or is hard to get into first lately? This would indicate a clutch issue.
Here is a guide that talks about this:
Lastly you can try shutting off the vehicle and then rocking it while someone tries to get it out of reverse. A lot of times when these are out of adjustment, there is just so much tension on it that it doesn't come out.
Let us know what you find with this. Thanks
