Could be that someone stole your drive shaft or it fell out OR the linkage or cable release system is bound up or adjusted so tight that it keeps plates apart or the plates are just totally worn out or something internal to clutch release broke. Or someone put your vehicle up on blocks so the tires are just barely off the ground a very dirty trick but not as bad as stealing your drive shaft Seriously, the most likely is that your clutch is worn out. Also check the linkage/cable/etc. for any ability to adjust it to get the clutch working again--the length of the cable/linkage matters. Clutches do wear out and fail.
