    If you bought a jackpot Cash4Life ticket in Brooklyn last summer, the New York Lottery is looking for you.

    The lottery released goofy posters resembling "wanted" signs for the winner of the $7 million-winning ticket purchased on July 24 at the Milky Way Deli on Ralph Avenue in Canarsie. The ticket holder has until Friday to claim the prize.

    One of the wanted posters features a stick-figure drawing of the winner, while another shows a hand-drawn rendition of the winner.

    If no one claims the prize, the money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners, the New York Lottery says.

    "We are urging players to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this $7 million jackpot prize," Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery, said.

    The winning ticket matched all six numbers from the Cash4Life drawing on July 24, 2014: 05 - 20 - 35 - 43 - 48 and the Cash Ball number 03.

    The ticket holder is encouraged to call 518-388-3370, visit one of the New York Lottery's customer service centers in Manhattan and Long Island, or visit the lottery's website to find out more.
