She said that she had friends address and real name and that I should go ahead and give her the number as well.

If she has that info, why can't she go online and look it up herself if she wants it that badly?  And if she still strikes out, then it's unlisted for a reason, and she'll just have to respect her privacy.

I think, if someone is close enough that they are entitled to updates on my condition/whereabouts, they already have my contact information.
No way should you give the person her number. I'd respond with FoxPaw's wording.

Just in case you have any doubts about refusing to disclose the number, consider this: just as your old friend cut you out of her life, maybe she is also doing it to her FB friends.

That's a good point.

If she's given you the cut direct, she doesn't want you in her life. Under those circumstances, you can neither phone her yourself, or give out her contact information.

I absolutely agree.

"Sorry, I can't help you.  I haven't been in contact with her in years."  That's all you need to say.

If she should continue to harass you to give her the number, just tell her you've already told her that you haven't been in contact with Missing for a long time, so please don't ask again.

I also agree with Fox Paws.  If this person persists in trying to get this information from you, time to at least unfriend and possibly block her too.

How does this person know you have the phone number?  That doesn't seem like something that would  be common knowledge.

Thanks everyone! I changed my fb settings to where only friends may message me. If the person continues to ask me, using other means, I will use FoxPaws's  suggestion.

Pierrotlunaire0, knowing friend, you are probably right.

Shoo, friend and I were friends in real life. I found a fun site and invited friend to join. The group knew that we would often be on the phone with each other while chatting to everyone else.

Update: Friend posted in the group today. Hopefully busybody will ask friend for the phone number so she doesn't feel the need to ask others for it.
