Washington Lottery Winner Still Missing - Saturday 24th of June 2006

WASHINGTON – As reported by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: "Somewhere in a wallet, in a purse, or maybe in a Dumpster, lies a Washington lottery ticket worth $6.3 million.

"And whoever has it might not know about the gold mine. No one has claimed the winning ticket since the Lotto numbers were drawn last Monday.

"Lottery officials don't know who wins until someone steps forward. Most people claim their winnings within 48 hours, but this time it has already been a week, said Jacque Coe, communications director for the Washington Lottery.

"…The winning numbers were 3-8-9-10-13-47. The ticket was sold at the Northtown QFC in Bellevue.

"…But whoever won last week's unclaimed ticket has time to realize it. Winners have 180 days from the drawing date to cash in…"
