The noise you describe sounds like it could be a wheel bearing. but a mechanic would normally be able to find this by spinning up the rear wheels. There is very little at the rear which could make a noise other than the wheel bearings or a tyre noise.
It can be the case that the wheel bearing will not make the noise until the speed increases and this may explain why your mechanic has not found it.
The other possibility is that a part of the exhaust system is touching the body at some point, this is another point which should be checked.
