Jennifer Hudson’s sister Julia Hudson made an emotional plea today for the return of her son who has been missing since yesterday afternoon when Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death in their home.
Questions had been raised concerning Julia’s whereabouts when it appeared that someone logged into her Myspace page to accept friend requests this morning:
The older sister of actress Jennifer Hudson pleaded for the return of her missing son at the family’s church on the South Side of Chicago.
Julia Hudson made the public plea Saturday for her 7-year-old son, Julian King, who was reported missing Friday from the family’s home. The same day, Hudson’s mother and brother were found shot to death in the home.
Julia Hudson said Jennifer Hudson flew to Chicago after learning the news and the sisters have “been together since.”
The 31-year-old woman spoke from the church podium with the boy’s father, Greg King, at her side. She said her son “doesn’t deserve this.”
“All I ask, I don’t care who you are, just let my baby go. Please. I just want my son,” the actress’ sister, Julia Hudson, said in a tearful plea for the safe return of her son at Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church, the family’s church.
Asked if anyone would want to take the boy, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t care. I just want him back.”
Julian’s father, Greg King, spoke outside the church briefly. “I just want my son,” King said. “He needs to come home.”
Julia Hudson said her son was very close to his grandmother, who took care of him when Hudson went to work.
Speaking to the public, Hudson said, “I want you to keep your eyes and your ears open.”
Hudson said the deaths of her mother and brother has left her close-knit family “in a state of shock.”
“It hurts,” she said. “I don’t know what else to do besides pray.”
