Baltimore Woman Says She Misplaced Mega Millions Ticket

The McDonald's employee who says she won the Mega Millions lottery in Maryland tells a television station she can't find it.

The question on a lot of people's minds is why Mirlande Wilson, the McDonald's employee who says she won the Mega Millions jackpot in Maryland, hasn't produced the winning ticket.

She told a local television station Thursday she may have lost it.

A reporter for Washington's News4 asked Wilson if she was going to come forward with what she claims is the winning ticket.

"If I find it," Wilson said. "I misplaced it."

She also said she did not make up the story of winning the ticket to gain attention and that she hid the ticket at the McDonald's in Milford Mill where she works. (See the video here.)

Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett told Pikesville Patch Wednesday afternoon that no one has filed a legitimate claim or come forward with the .

Wilson held a press conference Wednesday morning with her attorney.

Wilson did not speak, according to a FOX News report, but her attorney Edward Smith asked the media "to not pester his client."

He said her claim is "a legitimate claim," but he has not seen the ticket, the report states.

Wilson allegedly bought Mega Millions lottery tickets for herself and a pool of coworkers at the Milford Mill McDonald's where she works.

She has also said she bought a ticket separately—the winning ticket.

One of three winning Mega Millions tickets was sold at the 7-Eleven at 8014 Liberty Road, in Milford Mill, Baltimore County, the Maryland Lottery has reported. Two others were sold in Illinois and Kansas.

This lady is nuts! And if she did have the ticket to start with and lost it, then I choke it up to Karma............serves her right!

just for the sake of argument, if she really lost the ticket, does the 7-11 still get paid?
