Its hard to say without a model number but some time you may just need to adjust the control cable. Take the cover off and you should find a adjustment. Put a little more tension on the cable so it pulls the transmission in to gear.

Check the drive belt, it may have come off or broken. If it's still on, make sure the tensioner moves when you move the cable. If not, you may have a broken cable and/or actuator control. (lever and box on the handlebar).
