Transfer case stuck in neutral

On my way home from work the truck slipped into neutral. This happened a few days ago and I assumed the worst. At that time was able to get under the truck and found the transfer case linkage had disconnected from the shifter. I grabbed the linkage and shifted it back into 2wd. Today the same thing happens. I roll into a parking lot and figure "no biggie, probably just slipped back in neutral". Well this time it won't find a gears regardless of what position I put the T case in. It's as if something is screwed up internally on the T case. It still has 4 definitive solid positions when I move the linkage. Doesn't feel sloppy or loose or anything, yet it still can't move. Headed over to where I left it in the morning and having to flatbed it to the garage. Any ideas????

I read about someone having the same issue a while back. Turned out to be a shift fork in the transfer case.

I'm leaning that way too. Picking it up now and I suppose dropping the T case. I'll take pics of the issue once I diagnose it

Well it needs the range shift fork. Having a hard time finding any and I need the truck back on the road ASAP. Any ideas where I could get it quick? If not i might have to get a used T case quick
