"A mother-of-seven who claimed she was one of the winners of the $656 million Mega Millions lottery told NBC News on Thursday that she has lost the ticket.
Mirlande Wilson, 37, claims she bought the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven in Baltimore, but so far none of the three winners -- the two others were in Illinois and Kansas -- has actually come forward to claim the money.
Asked by NBC Washington's Shomari Stone whether she was going to ask for her share, Wilson said, "if I find it [the ticket]."
Stone then asked Wilson if she had lost the ticket and she replied, "I misplaced it."

She was reportedly responsible for a McDonald's employee pool of Mega Millions tickets, but has said that the winning ticket wasn't part of the pool.
On Wednesday, Wilson's lawyer Edward Smith Jr., asked the press to leave her alone. Journalists gathered in his office and were then told to go away.
"That's really it ... to ask you to go back to your places," Smith said."
I've been watching this story as I from Baltimore and this story has been crazy.
First, she says she won but employees at her job said they were in a pool and they had won also
Second, she says she is not spitting anything and that she bought that individual ticket herself
Third, she claims to have the ticket but never goes to the lottery department to claim the prize and says it's in a safe place
Fourth, a mother claims her son is the actual winner bringing light that this woman has been lying the whole time
Lastly, she says she lost it.
I don't know if this woman was desperate for attention or what but if she did actually loose the ticket, this would go down as one of the biggest epic fails in history.
