11 February 2015, 08:32 | Updated: 11 February 2015, 08:33

The search is on for a lottery winner somewhere in Bournemouth or Christchurch.

The winning ticket matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on 20 December 2014. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 18, 22, 23, 32, 40, 42 and the bonus ball was 28. The lucky ticket-holder has until 18 June 2015 to come forward and make their claim.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities - players raise, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week

A National Lottery spokesperson said:

"We're desperate to find this missing ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this really could be the best way to celebrate Valentine's Day and show your partner how special they really are."  

"We have the champagne on ice and a dozen red roses at hand, as well as our fingers crossed, that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
