SPANISH SPRINGS, Nev. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a person was found dead in the backyard of a Spanish Springs home.

Washoe County sheriff's officials say the discovery came about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on Mia Drive, south of Eagle Canyon Road and west of Pyramid Highway.

Deputy Armando Avina says a caller informed the Fallon Police Department that there was a body at the home, and Fallon police passed the tip to Washoe County Sheriff's Office.

Avina says authorities formed teams and slowly closed in on the house, where they made the discovery.

Details about the person who died or the circumstances of the death were not immediately available.

KTVN reports deputies are in contact with Fallon police to learn more about the original tipster.
