I was working the north radar position. All other radar position were combined to me. I had 15 aircraft on frequency, 1 overflt nebound at 7000 ft dropped off scope and I was too busy to catch it. He was not handed off to the next sector appropriately. Caused by excessive workload. Position should have been decombined. I should have had a handoff person to help.
