CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Reno retiree has been waiting for a long time to cash the more than $50,000 check the state just cut him.

The Nevada Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/2bBMBNr ) that on Tuesday Stewart Nelson collected a check for $52,146 from Nevada’s Unclaimed Property fund. The money came from 64 shares of AT&T; stocks his mother left him when she died and a bond he forgot about.

Nelson’s business partner Michael Levitt says when he and Nelson decided to close their computer store they figured it was time to tie up loose ends and track down money they were owed.

Treasurer Dan Schwartz says the state has millions in Unclaimed Property it has not been able to return to the rightful owners.
