Mirlande Wilson, 37, who previously said she was hiding the lucky ticket in a Baltimore area McDonald’s where she works, told NBC 4 that she can’t find it.

The revelation came hours after Wilson held a news conference with her attorney to ask the media, eager to interview an apparent winner in the record-breaking $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, to leave her alone.

According to a Maryland State Lottery Agency spokesman, a legitimate winning ticket holder has not yet come forward in the state.

Last week’s lottery drawing resulted in a total of three winning tickets, including one sold at a 7-Eleven in Baltimore County. The winner has until Sept. 28 to claim the prize.
