2009 Mustang shifter not engaging in 1st gear

I just noticed that my 2009 does not allow me to move the shifter into first gear manually. It is an automatic, I had a little difficulty moving it into 3rd from drive and it eventually went into 1st but it will not stay there.

The car shifts normally from other selections from 2 through Overdrive but I cannot get it to stay in the 1st gear slot.

Is it possible the linkage or the cable is bad?
