NEW YORK (AP) - Someone who purchased a winning lottery ticket in the Bronx has missed a chance to become a millionaire.

The Powerball ticket expired on Sunday without anyone claiming it. It had five of the six winning numbers.

Tickets expire a year after a game’s drawing.

The Bronx ticket was purchased Feb. 2, 2013 at the C&C; Discount on East 167th Street.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1axHEi5 ) reports that store employees and customers theorized that the person must have died, gone to prison, lost it or simply tossed it without bothering to check it.

The Bronx ticket is one of five second-place Powerball tickets worth $1 million each that were purchased in 2013 and have yet to be claimed. The other tickets have not yet expired.
