The tip might have swelled up. Supposedly the Bosch ones in the Powerstroke engines have that issue. The carbon could have formed around the GP tip. I have the reamer to clean that and I do that every year.

Your only option is to crank it and hope the pressure pushes it out. That or you can try soak it with Liquid Wrench of something like that and drill a hole in the GP, screw a long screw in and try to pull it out.
