Read your contract and discuss it with your buyers agent.  Most contracts specify it is the duty of the seller to have the home available for inspection. 

As Wetdawgs stated - don't speculate.  Your agent should point blank ask the sellers agent if another contract has been presented. 

You need to work with your buyers agent and the listing agent to get this taken care of before your inspection contingency expires.

Your agent and the listing agent should be working hard to resolve this.

"may have" suggests speculation, which tends to be a waste of time.  Work on the issue, not the speculation.

This is a contract issue. Although I do not where you're State of Residence is but in the State of Arizona, an Arizona Association of Realtors Purchase Contract has a section specifically having both the buyer and seller both initial and sign the contract agreeing to have an inspection be carried out among many other terms. Once signed and mutually agreed upon, it becomes a binding contract. Should the seller, if this was in Arizona, refuse entry for an inspection, he/she is in breach of contract. Please review your contract and immediately check with your Realtor to remedy the problem.

I'd give them a notice to perform and be prepared to start looking for another house.

Please remember you are SPECULATING so make sure it's what you want to do.
