ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Someone in New Mexico may have an early Christmas gift in the form of a $1 million lottery ticket.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ziaFV9) that Wednesday is the deadline for a winning New Mexico Lottery ticket to be claimed.

New Mexico Lottery CEO David Barden says now is the time for residents who played the lottery in a drawing Sept. 27 to search their homes and cars for the ticket.

Lottery officials say the lucky ticket was bought at 1:57 p.m. at a Circle K in northwest Albuquerque.

They say it’s unknown if the ticket’s buyer lives in New Mexico or out of state.

The winner needs to get to the lottery by close of business and sign for it.
