Lottery tickets

People in a Spanish town are on the hunt for the person who missed out on fortune by buying a winning lottery ticket and then leaving it behind in the shop.

The winning ticket for June 30, 2012, was discovered by the owner of the lottery shop. The ticket, which is worth $6.3 million, was kept for a year in the shop's lost and found box before the owner decided to toss it out. Before tossing it, he decided to scan it first, reported Reuters.

Shop owner Manuel Reija will get to keep the money if no one responds to a notice on the town hall's website urging the winner to come forward.
