(Newser) – Police searching for Jennifer Hudson's missing 7-year-old nephew said this morning they've found the body of a young black boy in a sports utility vehicle. There is no confirmation on the identity of the body. A spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's office says it has sent investigators to the scene.

Julian King hasn't been seen since Friday, when Hudson's mother and brother were found shot to death in their home. Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the boy and were looking for a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban. The Oscar-winning actress offered a $100,000 reward for his safe return.
