A nurse who was kidnapped outside a Michigan hospital was found dead in the back of a vehicle with gunshot wounds. Cops are on the lookout for her ex-boyfriend, who is identified as the suspect.

Patrice Latoya Wilson was abducted in the parking area outside of Detroit Receiving Hospital on Saturday morning, ClickOnDetroit reported.

Wilson was leaving after working an overnight shift when Jamere Miller, 36, forced himself inside her vehicle and drove off with her. Wilson's mother said Miller was her daughter's ex-boyfriend.

"He approached our victim just as she was getting into the driver's side of her vehicle. He then got inside the vehicle and forced her over and fled with her inside," said Capt. Donna McCord, with the Detroit Police Department.

Wilson's mother, Rosalyn Livingston, said she got a call from someone who spoke to the nurse before her phone went dead.

"I got a call from someone who said they were talking to Patrice on the phone and they heard screaming," Livingston told WXYZ.

Officers eventually found Wilson's body in the trunk of a vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds.

"It is with deep sadness that we offer heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and DMC colleagues of cherished nurse leader Patrice Wilson, as well as Patrice's mother, another dedicated DMC team member," said Brian Taylor, director of communications and media relations with Tenet Healthcare. "Patrice was not just a co-worker but a loving friend to many at the DMC. Grief counseling is available for all staff at our Adult Central Campus hospitals."

Investigators are still on the lookout for Miller and said he may be armed and dangerous.

Livingston said Miller was slightly obsessed with her daughter.

"The more she pulled away...he was sending flowers. If you go by her house there are things at her door that she kind of like left there to let him know I am not accepting things from you," Livingston told WXYZ.

She described her daughter as quiet, studious and a good mother to her son. Livingston, who lost her son in 2003 when he was just 15 years old, said she is "going through a lot right now."
