Problems with Heat Sensor

I may have stripped the wire out of the heat sensor. What to do from here?

Just to give the background of what has happened up until now, I've had a cascading failure when trying to change the nozzle of my Ultimaker 2+. The nozzle would not come out, and I there was a ton of residue on the heater block. So I took the assembly apart to clean it up. But the nozzle wouldn't come out. So I read up and watch some tutorials on removing the heater block. I heated up the block with a heat gun and slowly pulled on the temp sensor wire, but I think the wire stripped.

The end result, I'm pretty sure the sensor is still in the block. Is there any way to get the wire back into the sensor?
