The ticket can be claimed up to a year!! The ticket holder was single, his/her apartment has been abandoned.
What are your options?

    First thing is let the lottery office know that the winning ticket was part of a pool with documentation like copies of tickets, and that the ring leader has gone missing.  They'll immediately put a hold while they investigate further.  Second, get an attorney.  He/she won't be able to access the money without addressing it with the lottery office and attorney; the matter may even end up in litigation.

    The attorney will likely hire a private investigator to ascertain his/her whereabouts in the meantime.  If he/she has fled the country, it's possible that everyone involved might be screwed as the winning ticket may never be redeemable (destroyed, lost, etc.)

      This movie has been made before and the script is always the same. 

      Notify the lottery commission that the winning ticket was purchased for a pool of players and be prepared to follow up with documentation.  If the documentation is solid then the right parties will received their just rewards. 

      If one is playing in a pool the possibility of this happening should always be a considered and prepared for.

          LOL that's it to a tee.....the legal way of course, cause to tell the truth after he/she was found and everything got straightened out....Well let's just say they'd come up missing again

              You'd be shocked at the number of pools that don't provide copies of the tickets, to their members, prior to the drawing. They usually say, "We trust each other", and some are just too afraid to ask. I once asked for a copy prior to the draw and the girl asked me, "Don't you trust me?". I answered,"I trust you, but I TRUST THE COPY a lot better". You snooze, you lose!!!.

                    noise-gate,

                    I wonder if this ever actually happned.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      On the last big PB, the guy running our pool emailed us pics of the tickets then flew to LA. Joking he said we might not see him if we win. I told him no problem, i'll just kidnap your mom.
