    The search is on for the country's newest multimillionaires, the holders of two tickets that matched all six numbers to claim a record $588 million Powerball jackpot.  

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A group of about 20 Columbus police officers are holding a $1 million ticket sold during the Powerball drawing.

Ohio Lottery Commission spokeswoman Sandra Neal told the Columbus Dispatch for its Thursday edition  that the winners have not come forward yet.

Jim Gilbert, president of the local Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge No. 9, confirmed to the paper that a group of about 20 officers were among the winners.

More than 300,000 Ohioans won some cash, with a Cleveland gas station selling a $2 million ticket and 17 people winning a $10,000 prize.

Lottery officials say two tickets that matched all six numbers to split a record $588 million Powerball jackpot were sold in Arizona and Missouri.
