Dec. 26 (UPI) -- The Michigan Lottery is trying to find the holder of a $25,000-a-year-for-life lottery ticket that is due to expire in just one week.

The lottery said the Lucky For Life ticket, which won a $25,000-a-year-for-life prize in a Jan. 1, 2018, drawing, will become worthless at 4:45 p.m. on Jan. 2.

Michigan Lottery officials said Lucky For Life tickets usually expire exactly one year from the drawing, but the owner of the missing ticket has an extra day because Jan. 1 is a state holiday.

The ticket, which also offers an option to collect a one-time $390,000 lump sum, was purchased from the Picnic Basket store in Plymouth.

Officials said the prize money will go to the state's School Aid Fund if the winner fails to come forward before the deadline.
