Megan Wright, the woman who allegedly received a phone call from Deborah Bradley's stolen cellphone on the night baby Lisa Irwin disappeared, said she knows who received the mysterious call.

Wright continuously denied receiving the call and said she shares the phone with seven other people.

Wright appeared on the "Headline News: Special Report" show and said a man named "Dane" had her cellphone on both Oct. 3 and Oct. 4. She also claimed nobody else could use the phone because Dane was getting too many text messages and phone calls.

However, a person who lives with Wright said this information is false and the members of Wright's house do not share a cellphone, according to a Fox News report released on Tuesday.

Wright also said the man was waiting for an apartment lease with a friend and was only staying at her house temporarily. He left just after police questioned him, according to Wright.

Wright is the ex-girlfriend of neighborhood repairperson John Tanko, who has been repeatedly questioned by police. Tanko has a history of break-ins in the area but police have recently cleared him from any involvement

Lisa went missing from her Missouri home Oct. 4. Her case received national attention due to the strange events that took place the night she disappeared.

Lisa's mother, Bradley, admitted she fell asleep drunk the night the baby vanished. Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, worked an unusual night shift and did not return home until 4 a.m. He noticed his daughter was not in her crib and called the authorities.

A phone call was made to Wright from Bradley's cellphone that was thought to be stolen along with Lisa.

Both of Lisa's parents have said they could not make phone calls during the night, according to a KCTV5 report.

Police have said Lisa's parents are “uncooperative.” Bradley failed a polygraph test and both have refused to do private interviews with authorities.

People in the neighborhood conducted a search over the weekend for clues on Lisa's disappearance.

Police received thousands of tips but have had little success making progress in the case.

Baby Lisa will turn 1-years-old on Friday.
