UAE residents have found Abu Dhabi's ‘missing’ millionaire.

Ravindra Boloor, from India, won the Dh10mn jackpot in the Big Ticket Millionaire raffle last week.

However, raffle organisers were unable to find him as he was out of the country at the time.

Organisers sought the help of people across the country and the hashtag #FindRavi spread across social media until the lucky winner was found in Mumbai, India.

"Thank you, everyone, for helping us find Ravi! We are finally able to reach him and he is ecstatic about winning the Big 10 Million grand prize!" the raffle team posted on Instagram.

Mr Boloor will receive his prize on May 3 at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Big Ticket Millionaire is the airport's longest running raffle.
