The California Lottery is looking for the winner of a $340,608 lottery ticket who had not claimed the prize.

The ticket was purchased two months ago from Al’s Market at 7062 Westminster Boulevard in Westminster. According to the lottery, the ticket matched five of six numbers -- 3, 52, 28, 8, 21. It missed the "Mega number" of 43.

"Imagine what a happy new year it would be if you found a Lottery ticket worth $340,608 in your couch cushions," the lottery said in a statement. "The California Lottery is asking all Lottery players in and around Westminster to check all their tickets."

Lottery winners have 180 days to claim their prize.
