Weird noise from around alternator or belt

I have a '98 Ford Taurus LX with a V6 Vulcan engine. I am getting a weird noise--kind of like the whine from the gears when someone drives in reverse in an older car--when I have the engine running. The noise goes up in pitch as the engine turns faster, but does not disappear when I am idling. After driving for a while, the noise sometimes disappears. I have opened the hood while the engine is turning and can hear the noise seems to be coming from somewhere around the alternator, belt, or somewhere in that region.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
