The Phoenix Police Department says it has located the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run that killed former Pine Creek athlete Taylor White.

The white SUV was located Monday, more than a week after the April 8 incident. It is unclear where the vehicle was found, according to an ABC15 report. Police are processing the vehicular information in hopes it leads to a suspect. No further information on the case is available at this time.

A $5,000 reward is set for information leading to an arrest.

White was a 2015 graduate of Pine Creek. He was an accomplished wrestler and football player on the Eagles' back-to-back state title teams in 2013-14. White also enjoyed CrossFit, and was an active member of a gym on Northpark Dr., CrossFit Pandora's Box, where he trained since he was 16 years old. The gym has started a GoFundMe page to support a Taylor White Memorial Scholarship fund which has raised over $600 in three days.

The White family will host a Final Summit Celebration of Taylor's life this Saturday at New Life Church.
