Hollywood has been known as the land of dreams and for one person that dream could come to an end in a month.

One Powerball ticket that matched 31-35-41-9-57 and only missed the Powerball number 26. It is worth $465,539 has gone unclaimed for five months. The ticket was purchased at Whitley Market on 1900 North Highland Ave. right on the corner of Highland and Franklin.

You know how we know this is serious news? Because the California Lottery said so in their press release. "Okay people, this is getting serious! Search your couch cushions, look in your glove box, check all your pants pockets."

The winner has until 5 p.m. on Nov. 18 to claim their winnings. If it is not claimed, it will be added to the lottery's contribution to education.
