Hey Mac, sorry for your bad luck. I haven't seen a '99 1500 latch so
I'm going by Google.
Have you tried to use a bent hanger to pull the latching part on the
underside of the hood towards the front of the truck to unlatch it? I
would try with the hood pulled up the inch or two till I got it hooked
with the hanger, then press down a bit on the hood then pull the latch
Take a look at this Recall notice as it has a diagram.
Of course that one is different than my 2500 '03 which you can reach
through the grill with a long skinny screwdriver and push the latch
where the latch rod connected, to the right (driver's side) to release it.

Got a great email with photos from Bob Stout...
Nan opened it this morning on her way out to work!
Method was pretty much the same as your 2500, with a long rod...
We'd tried coathanger, baling wire, etc... no luck...
