Kansas officials say state's Mega Millions winner has come forward, plan news conference By The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) ' Kansas Lottery officials have said the holder of a winning Mega Millions ticket has come forward to claim a share of a record $656 million jackpot.

Lottery officials declined Friday to provide any details about that person or where the winning ticket was purchased. They scheduled an afternoon news conference.

They've previously said the state's winning ticket was purchased a store in northeast Kansas. Winning tickets also were purchased in Illinois and Maryland, making the Kansas ticket worth almost $219 million.

The winner has waited almost a week since the Friday drawing that produced the three winning tickets for the multistate game. But Kansas law allows someone to wait up to a year to claim a lottery prize ' and permits them to remain anonymous.
