PALMDALE, Calif., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A California woman who had a $23 million lottery ticket and didn't know it finally got her prize months later -- after lottery officials began looking for her.

The unnamed woman purchased the SuperLotto Plus ticket May 30 at a Palmdale, Calif., market, then put it in her car's glove compartment without checking the numbers, KTLA-TV, Los Angeles, reported Friday.

SuperLotto Plus jackpot winners have 180 days to claim the money. With 25 days left, she came forward -- after California State Lottery officials circulated a store surveillance photograph of her purchasing the ticket.

Her daughter saw the photo in a local newspaper and informed her mother, who retrieved the ticket from the glove compartment, the television station said.
