Try jacking up the back end and spinning the tires by hand and see if you hear it. While you are at it check and see if the bearings in the rear are worn or not. If it isn't convenient to jack it up you can try just coasting with the car off and the windows down and listening. This should allow you to isolate the location of the noise. If you do this make sure it is on an empty road, both for safety reasons and so you can hear better.
