The Louisiana Lottery is urging the person holding a winning lottery ticket to come forward soon.
The lottery commission says someone bought a Mega Millions ticket last September that's worth $5,000. The ticket was purchased at a convenience store in Slidell and matched four of five white-ball numbers and the Mega Ball.
The deadline to claim the prize is March 24th.
