Photo Helps Track Down Calif. Lottery Winner

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. In California, a surveillance photo made the news and was plastered all over the liquor store where it was snapped. The blurry photo showed a woman approaching the cash register, the object of a massive manhunt by the state's lottery. She was suspected of buying a winning ticket worth $23 million. Yesterday, alerted by her daughter, who'd seen the surveillance photo, just ahead of the deadline to claim her millions, the woman came forward. It's MORNING EDITION.
