CHICAGO (AP) -- Police in Chicago say the license plate on the white SUV found containing a child's body matches the Amber Alert issued in the search for Jennifer Hudson's missing nephew.
Authorities say the body is that of a young black boy, but the child hasn't yet been identified. The vehicle was found early Monday on Chicago's West Side.
Police officials confirmed that the license plate matches the vehicle listed on the Amber Alert issued for 7-year-old Julian King on Friday after Hudson's mother and brother were found shot to death in their home.
The Oscar-winning actress on Sunday offered a $100,000 reward for Julian's safe return.
He's the son of Jennifer Hudson's sister, Julia Hudson.
Police on Sunday transferred custody of a "person of interest" in the killings to state authorities.
