Somewhere there is a winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Virginia that is in danger of becoming just another scrap of paper.
The Mega Millions ticket was bought months ago for the September 16 drawing and no one's come forward since, according to the release.
Someone who bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket in Chesapeake previous year is in danger of losing a million-dollar prize. Unclaimed prizes go to Virginia's Literary Fund.
Virginia lottery tickets must be claimed within 180 days after a drawing.
If you're the victor, contact lottery officials at 804-692-7000 or 757-825-7800.
State law says the victor has 180 days to pick up the prize, or the funds go to Virginia's Literary Fund, which funds education initiatives around the state, like technology in schools and teacher retirement funding.
This said ticket hit every number but missed the Mega Ball number, winning the Mega Millions $1 million second place prize.
The winning numbers were 13-21-28-34-40, and the Mega Ball number was 15.
