The search is on for the person who bought a winning Lottery Ticket in the Stirling council area over five months ago.

Lottery bosses are keen to find the oblivious millionaire, who is sitting on a £3,062,272 fortune.

The unclaimed money is from the Wednesday, December 17 draw when five numbers and the bonus ball were matched in the Lotto Quadruple Rollover. The winning numbers on that date were 2, 19, 24, 33, 35, 46 and the bonus ball was 12.

The owner of the winning ticket only has until June 15 to claim the prize.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “We’ve been searching for this missing winner for five months now but, as yet, we’ve had no luck. With the ticket expiry date looming we’re giving it one final push to find the mystery millionaire as, while there is still time, there is still definitely hope.”

Lotto can only roll over four times and as no one matched all six numbers in the draw on December 17, the prize money was shared between the winners in the next winning prize level, with five winners sharing a total of £15,311,360.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
