Someone is sitting on a Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million, but they have not yet come forward to collect the prize.

The ticket was purchased the morning of Jan. 13 in Newport for the Jan. 15 drawing. The ticket matched the five winning numbers 29-41-53-54-70, but missed the Mega Ball number of 12.

The jackpot for that drawing was $22 million.

As of this week, nobody had claimed the $1 million prize for the ticket purchased in Newport. That ticket is valid until Jan. 15, 2017, one year from the date of the drawing.

"Whether you live in Newport, or were visiting last January, check to make sure you aren't sitting on a $1 million ticket. If you have the winning ticket, sign the back immediately and call the Oregon Lottery ahead of time to schedule a time to come in to claim the prize," said Patrick Johnson, winner and promotion specialist with the Oregon Lottery.

All unclaimed prizes go into the state's Economic Development Fund. In fiscal year 2015, more than $5.9 million in unclaimed prizes were transferred to the fund. In the timespan between July 1 and Nov. 30, more than $1.66 million in prizes have gone unclaimed in this fiscal year, according to lottery officials.
