LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada’s Department of Corrections says a 62-year-old inmate at a Carson City prison has died.

The department said in a statement Wednesday that Callisha Lakota died Tuesday evening at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center. Prison officials did not release details about Lakota’s death but said an autopsy will be performed.

Lakota was serving up to life in prison for charges related to sexual assault and embezzlement. He had been at the prison since 1988.

The prison system says it has not been able to find any relatives of Lakota and is asking those with contact information for his next-of-kin to reach out to the Nevada Department of Corrections.
