I searched myself and found no phone number attached to my name. Just wondered where they are getting my number from.

Currently, none of the major cellular service providers offer a subscriber directory. If this person in fact found your information online, it would have been using a private site.
Information data brokers often aggregate consumer data from online forms, property records, even public posts made online (such as those made on social networks). This information is aggregated and frequently sold to companies that provide Internet white pages, online detective and background check services. These services may make the information available for a fee or sometimes for free by supporting the site with ads.
Now, due to privacy concerns, some of these sites implement filters to limit certain types of information from being displayed (such as cell phone numbers and email addresses). Others may be more liberal with the information they display. So, as to your question about how they found your information when you could not, it likely has to do with the two of you using different sites to search for your information.

Thank you very much for helping me with this answer. It sounds like this person is going to great lengths to find my number. I guess there is nothing private anymore.
