Georgia Lottery officials say one of the winners of the $636 million Mega Millions prize has come forward.

Officials are set to identify the jackpot winner during a news conference Tuesday afternoon. They say the winner won't be in attendance.

The winning ticket was sold at a Gateway Newsstand in the city's Buckhead area. A second winning ticket was sold at a gift shop in San Jose, Calif.

The winning numbers were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball 7.

The jackpot is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history. It started its ascent Oct. 4. Lotto officials say 22 draws came and went without winners.
