*UPDATED* Hudson Tragedy Update: Julia Hudson Pleas For Her Son Julian

Just hours ago Julia Hudson, Jennifer Hudson's sister and mother of missing 7 year old Julian, gave a public plea for the safe return of her son.  Julian's biological father, Greg King, was also at the podium (on right).    Julia, who we haven't heard from since she reported her child missing yesterday afternoon, says she was the person who broke the tragic news to Jennifer about their mother and brother's death.  Here's a snippet of the Chicago Tribune coverage and you can go here to see the video of her plea:
"All I ask, I don't care who you are, just let my baby go," she said to reporters and relatives. "I just want my son back. He doesn't deserve this." Standing next to Greg King, Julian's father, Julia Hudson described her son as an "easy-going" child who would rather stay home and read a book or hang out with his grandmother than play outside. When she called her sister, Jennifer, Julia said the Oscar winner "was screaming" and "flew in right away." "It hurts. We're in a state of shock. I don't know what else to do but pray," Julia Hudson said. She urged the public to keep your eyes and ears open and to call out Julian's name or "Juice Box" or "Dr. King," other names he answers to. "He's out there. Just let him go," she said, her voice cracking. Asked what she would say to her son now, Julia Hudson said: "I love you. Mama's looking for you." Julia Hudson said her mother and her son were "extremely close." "I worked, so he was always with her, day in and day out," she said. "She did everything for him. She got him ready for school. She got him ready for bed." She said Julian is smart, has a good sense of direction and knows where he lives. She described him as a "sensitive child" who "doesn't like to get hollered at." She pleaded with Julian's abductor: "Give me my baby back, that's all I ask. I know he's out there. Just let him go." Asked her greatest fear and greatest hope, she said: "My greatest fear has already happened. My greatest hope is for him to come back."
The FBI has been called in as well.  Our prayers are still with the Hudson family. UPDATE: Jesse Jackson Jr. has spoken out Sunday morning about Julian King being held for ransom and neighbors have confirmed that William has threatened to take the child away if Julia kept "playing him".  Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley has also spoken out.  And Sen. Barack Obama has released the following statement to Jennifer and family, as he asked Jennifer to sing the National Anthem at the Democratic National Convention a few months ago:
"Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy, and we want Jennifer and to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew."

I am so sorry this happened

I am so sorry this happened to you and your family. I can't imagine a greater tragedy. I will continue to pray. Julia as another mother I want to say something that would give you peace but I know there is nothing. We live in a cruel world. him. I believe in God and we must trust in him. There are demons roaming this earth seeking to destroy all that is good. Julian was a precious child. Your mother was the best friend to you and your sister. My mother is my best friend too. To think that someone would hurt them deliberately is beyond belief. Julia and Jennifer take care of yourself and each other.

it saddens me that this

it saddens me that this little innocent boy was involved in such a haenous crime....to be placed in a domestic dispute that didn't involve him is tragic, but to now know that he lost his life because of it...is disheartening....my prayers are with the Hudson family...and I know they have all found rest with God....in response to the sister's "plea"...now....i ain't the brightest crayon in the box...but i still color...and she seemed very "displaced"....which could be shock....i wonder how she told jennifer...and when jennifer asked she had more answers than what she gave in that plea.....because Lord knows if my child was missing....wouldn't be no televised plea....i'd be in the streets lookin'....and i'm not judging her...i just think her disposition is a little "off"...

ohh btw, william or someone

ohh btw, william or someone has accessed his myspace page and changed his mood to "forgotten". honestly, if anyone out of this who damn sure shouldn't be on his myspace page is HIM. I think whoever was on there has been going through erasing any bad messages towards him on that page, but.... that guy... i'm going to bed, still frustrated over it all.

[quote comment="254230"]There

[quote comment="254230"]There is more information about the case (at least this is news to me, if you have heard this already then disregard): the spokesperson for the police department has stated that from reports of various sources and neighbors william and julia had an argument over a CAR. William attempted to steal or had sold Julia's car without julia's permission, and once she found out about they had a huge argument resulting in him vowing to kill her family "in revenge". the site that I read this on has been pretty good with gathering information, however I'm not citing the site because 1. I could be banned and 2. if this turns out to be false then people will go bash the site for putting out lies. has anyone else heard this information or was it on here? I've read so many things about this since it broke that I don't know what from where anymore. either way I hope he didn't kill them over a damn car, because his not telling no one about the child boils back down to a car!! he's risking a child's life and killed two people over a #$%$ CAR!!! I don't care if it was a lambourghini no one is worth killing, being killed over or harming a child's life for.[/quote] I heard about the car argument and I also heard that Julia had been threatening to divorce him. I honestly don't see why that would make him mad since he's already living with a girlfriend and has her pregnant. I have a friend in the same exact situation though and her husband doesn't want to get a divorce. Its wierd. But if he's not in his right mind, his reason wouldn't be logical anyway. I know that Jennifer is offering a $100,000 reward now though. Hopefully that'll help. I can't believe they still haven't found him or the brother's white SUV yet!

You people are really all the same. The child does not deserve to have ever even been a part of this world. The real father looks dumber then rocks. Jennifer Hudson comes from a world of trash. Look who she is marrying as well a gay man. It is so sad that obesity and morbid obesity that the Hudson sisters have lead them to poor choices in men. This is not going to happen in papa knowles's family trust baby daniels father will mind his p's and q's. Pappa Knowles is not having anybody live in the damn hood! The South side of Chicago-why? Nobody deserves to be killed I feel horrible for the mother, brother and the son. The whole cycle of hood, thugs tragedy-this gets publicity but how many others on a daily basis??[/quote] I honestly think your post is inappropriate right now. So what because they're overweight? What the hell does that have to do with this little boy's whereabouts being unknown? Can you say no tact? Man. Anyway, yes it may have been a bad choice of a man but its not the right time.[/quote] Wow, I guess you are the judge and jury. Something tells me that it ain't so grand over in your parts, or are you one of those lonely chicks with a bunch of bitter time on her hands.

Are you skinny, if you are i am sure you are one of those people who is and is butt ugly with an attitude to match. kick rocks loser!!![/quote] No baby...I'm beautiful!!! Check me out on myspace...Avanti age 26 Buckhead, GA (Atlanta). Now you kick rocks. Yea, I'm thin but so what. I don't have drama in my life. Just bought a luxury condo, own my own vehicle, no children, have a fine man that is a professional and owns his own home. Now what?!?! Now that you've found out about me, guess what... your post is still inappropriate! So back to my point...just b/c their overweight doesn't mean they deserved this or brought this on themselves. Get real honey. HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!

because he won't get anything

because he won't get anything out of the divorce. he wants the whole bouncing back and forth thing, in case one woman puts him out he's got the backup. probably wanted to stay too to get any money he could from jen and spend it to his g/f. of course this is just my opinion.

[quote comment="253779"]God,

[quote comment="253779"]God, I have been praying for Jennifer's family since I heard about this. I dont even know that little boy, but Ive been worrying and thinking about him like he is my own child. I cant think about anything else, but Julian's safety. I just dont understand people and this crazy world that we live in. Also, most importantly........ I pray that Julia (Jennifer's sister) has NOTHING to do with her son's disappearance. I'm not accusing her of anything, but this story is just TOO odd! I mean......... It wouldnt the first! Also, what Ive NEVER been able to understand is how when people go through tragedy like this, they can talk to the media and answer questions. I mean........ im not saying that just because she made a public cry to the media and also answered questions, that shes guilty. All im saying that if my mother and brother were brutally murdered, and my seven year old child was missing, I WOULD AND COULD NOT be talking to the media about ANYTHING! I wouldnt even be able to get myself off the floor! I know that were all different! Everyone is not stronger than the next person, but I wouldnt be able to do it. I will continue to pray for this family and the safe recovery of Julian,[/quote] You never know what you would do unless faced with that situation. It always amazes me how well some people hold up in the face of death. We are wonderfully made and sometimes shock can keep a person going longer than those on the outside looking in can understand

Still in all, you hear about Caylee Anthony everyday.[/quote] Seriously where is Nancy Grace I thought she was commited to cases like this this needs to be all over the news whoever has this little boy is not an intelligent, highly experienced person judging off of what the husband looked like and his record they can find whoever is holding him they just need a couple good leads I cannot believe this is not all over the news.

*UPDATE*Democratic

*UPDATE*Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, who shares the same Chicago hometown as the singer, issued a statement Saturday. "Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time," the Illinois senator said. "We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew." Hudson sang the national anthem during the Democratic National Convention in August after a personal request from Obama's camp. "That was the biggest honor, I feel like, in my career – one of the greatest moments," Hudson told PEOPLE earlier this month. "I had to separate myself emotionally so I didn't get too emotional while I was singing because I can't sing and cry at the same time.... I was lucky to be a part of it." "She has done so much for the campaign," a campaign insider tells PEOPLE about the singer. "Everyone was just so shocked and saddened."

I can't believe some of the

I can't believe some of the stuff that I am reading today. Trying to blame bad choices in men because of obesity? That is such an ignorant statement. My best friend had her brains blown out by the boyfriend she was trying to flee from...she was very thin and gorgeous--could have had anyone, but picked a murderer...her weight had nothing to do with what happened to her. I am overweight and I am married to a PhD. He is a good man and comes correct...wtf is with people talking about someone's weight for? A tragedy happened, and we need to be worried for Julian.

Jennifer and her family could be as skinny as the olsen twins, living in Hoboken and living broke like the rest of average america and THIS STILL COULD HAVE HAPPENED to them! the reason it's making news is because she is a celebrity, but if she was an average citizen no news whatsoever. what is irritating IS that she is an african american woman who just happens to be a celebrity and is suffering something horrific. I still believe and hope that they are keeping on the low because of who she is and what has just happened and are working to find the child without the media telling every stupid move they make or if they are narrowing their search are which will freak the captor out and make him (or her because I think his girlfriend probably knows something. that has happened before where the g/f helped the b/f murder his wife and took the child and lied to the cops about it all) and do something rash. just don't sit here and say it's because they are overweight, because this unfortunately happened to them but you don't know if this could happen to you, your neighbor or family member because of someone they date or marry. you just DON"T know. there are women who are beaten and murdered who are skinny, big, tall, short, white, black, etc. so it's NOT about race or SIZE. violence doesn't see color, so don't narrow it down to that.[/quote] Obviously Julia settled for a man...oops I mean a thug and look what happened. No this could not have happened to anyone. This does not happen to women who pick good men for their children. This is what happens to women when they pick the wrong men.[/quote] sake of argument: any women could pick a guy that doesn't exhibit sociopathic behavior, just masks it till something snaps and it comes out. case example: woman that was a neighbor to a family member of mine. great guy, wonderful father, 3 children. family seemed damn near perfect. one night the wife and husband had a fight, he pulls out a gun and aims for her head and threatens to kill her. YEARS and there was no sign of this type of behavior, he was a model citizen, father and husband. never thought it could happen to them. they were able to get out and away from him and have him arrested, but he threatened to kill her and the kids if she tried to leave him. We do know she and the kids are out of the state and doing fine. I do understand your point in this, but sometimes women pick men who are the good guys but they turn out... bad. when a woman picks a guy that flat out has red flags, wrap sheets, paper back books and cops following you every day, then your man is BAD FOR YOU. it's just that a woman like julia picked a bad guy, but she could have picked a good guy but was hiding this insanity from her. he could have been the greatest father to julian, but could harm that child in a heartbeat. there are good men out there this is very true, but still, there is a chance that this could happen to anyone, whether it be on this scale or the man just being stupid towards the woman and she just lets him go. but size and race aren't the main factors when this could have happened to a small framed white woman. that was all. but I do understand your position on this, not saying you are wrong or anything.[/quote] I hear u on that..sometimes there are flags...sometimes there aren't.[/quote] and that's what I was trying to say in my first post. the size and race issue doesn't matter to a man who has the intent and mental ideals already in his head. what sucks is that on this board (I'm really sorry if this has been said 2700 times) there are people who are using this as a launch pad to start a battle over trivial matters in this case. I think the reason this is happening is because we can't physically do anything, but those narrow minded few decide to stir the pot. and now they're rewording their posts to look intelligent and we get baited *points to herself for getting baited several times*. I think that they must care about jennifer to some degree, because if they didnt they wouldn't have the forethought to come on here and say anything about her or her family. now those who just come on here and say "I'm going to do this and that and men are this and that that's why xyz" come on now. we hear that shit in the streets, in the hair salons, in the campus food courts almost daily. If this was you or your friend or family member who had to identify their mother and brother in the MORGUE earlier today, would you like it if you got online and found a ton of emails geared at bashing them? So honestly, the haters and dumbasses that are coming on here are doing some good, because they're keeping the rest of us focused on Jennifer and her family, they're reminding us of what type of people exist and are involved in this tragic situation and that we have to keep focused on that little boy. for every hater on here there's 10 people praying for her, and the more idiots that come the more wonderful people will show up and offer their support and love to her to show these asses up. I don't like these stupid people, but if I can still come on here and still see you regulars and new people come on here showing support then I'll keep coming here reading and posting. that's my little rant of the day. again guys sorry for the post, but that's why I love this site. get to speak your mind and get the latest info before anyone else on the web.

But she considered him harmless because he was "keen to stay out of jail" after serving prison time on a 1999 attempted murder and carjacking conviction.

There were red flags everywhere...[/quote] Watch out... you'll probably get jumped on like I did. I posted another story in the thread about neighbors hearing him make threats and she ignored them too and possibility of her knowing about his lifestyle.

what does being overweight

what does being overweight have to do with anything. you people are hating on your own people. let it be said once again black people hate each other. i live in California these tragedies happen on a weekly basis, chinese, korean, mexican, vietnamese, whites and VERY FEW blacks. so why do black people try to put each other down because of a crime that happens on a weekly basis to other races but then we denegrate ourselves if one of our people do it. It probably happens somewhere everyday, so why do black people put each other down for a crime that happens all the time. who has not been in a relationship that started out okay and then turns into a nightmare when an alternate personality shows up on the scene. how many times have we tried to overlook someones past and try to accept the people who present themselves to us only to discover they were smooth liars. come one quit blaming that girl for her choice, and quit saying because she is fat, black, and lives in the ghetto is the reason she even got with this guy. how do you know. I didn't see a dumb as a whatever in the father of her son I saw two people who were absolutely devestated with the events that have happened. Only a truly broken heart can show on the faces of those two. It made me cry because they were just absolutely flatblasted by this and because this is all so public. I am proud that the father came out with the mother of his child and even if he didn't say anything, hell at least he was there. Say that about yo baby daddy. It appears they lived in a nice house, big, not a little crack house, the neighborhood appears to be nice, and black people like to live around their own kind quiet as it's kept, because we know white folks don't want us around them, so whats the problem. You people are ignorant and twisted and need to just offer condolences to the family and leave your black folk hating selves quiet.

[quote comment="253856"]Balfour is being questioned by police and fbi, i kinda feel that he may not be involved. just because he is an ex-convict does not automatically mean that he's guilty. i hate the fact that people are using this just to jump all over the poor grieving stressed out mother. and i hate that people are more supportive of jennifer, i'm sure julian's mother needs our prayers more. i'm glad that she is so calm, i hope that she is NOT involved and it may be a possibility that julian is hiding somewhere but do they not have search teams looking for him? something just doesn't smell right.[/quote] They just started doing that today..handing papers out,etc. I guess the police is not letting the media know much... best way to throw the abductor off. They have yet to charge William and it's Sunday. I'm kind of confused on how he was chilling at his gf house and didn't run away. I feel like he knows something and refuses to snitch. I also find it crazy neighbors were listening to recent arguments of William making threats, but no one peeped outside when multiple shots were being fired,etc.

*UPDATE*--Neighbor Chiquita

*UPDATE*--Neighbor Chiquita Stanton said Balfour threatened to take the boy away if Julia Hudson continued to "play him." But she considered him harmless because he was "keen to stay out of jail" after serving prison time on a 1999 attempted murder and carjacking conviction. Balfour's family said he stole a car with other teens and hit a tree while the driver was on the hood. There were red flags everywhere...

[quote comment="253799"]Why

[quote comment="253799"]Why was she married to a convicted attempt murderer? South Side of Chicago where Barack O said he did charity work. You people are really all the same. The child does not deserve to have ever even been a part of this world. The real father looks dumber then rocks. Jennifer Hudson comes from a world of trash. Look who she is marrying as well a gay man. It is so sad that obesity and morbid obesity that the Hudson sisters have lead them to poor choices in men. This is not going to happen in papa knowles's family trust baby daniels father will mind his p's and q's. Pappa Knowles is not having anybody live in the damn hood! The South side of Chicago-why? Nobody deserves to be killed I feel horrible for the mother, brother and the son. The whole cycle of hood, thugs tragedy-this gets publicity but how many others on a daily basis??[/quote] Clearly you are some kind of expert on family life and relations, passing out judgment the way you just did. How do you know she married him because she is obese? I am not standing up for him or his alleged actions in anyway, but we don't know the facts of their relationship prior to things we've read online and conclusions we've drawn from their Myspace accounts. And honestly thats not nearly enough to go on. And then bringing up Jen's relationship with Punk. I know we all joke about how he's gay, but we are not in his bed and even if we were now is NOT the time to bring that up. I mean COME ON. And I also find it amazing that you felt the need to bring up the Knowles family in this issue that has nothing to do with them. What's the point of that? To prove they are somehow superior? Once again, because you are an expert on that family too? Everyone is an expert when they are on their computers and at their homes watching from the sidelines. This is a TRAGEDY. Please, step up your level of consciousness.

The whole cycle of hood, thugs tragedy-this gets publicity but how many others on a daily basis??[/quote] You have just said what other ppl were thinking, but afraid to let it out incase they get judged, but fuck that, speak ur mind up!!![/quote] i'm sorry but it doesn't matter what SIZE they were or if she was a celebrity. Jennifer and her family could be as skinny as the olsen twins, living in Hoboken and living broke like the rest of average america and THIS STILL COULD HAVE HAPPENED to them! the reason it's making news is because she is a celebrity, but if she was an average citizen no news whatsoever. what is irritating IS that she is an african american woman who just happens to be a celebrity and is suffering something horrific. I still believe and hope that they are keeping on the low because of who she is and what has just happened and are working to find the child without the media telling every stupid move they make or if they are narrowing their search are which will freak the captor out and make him (or her because I think his girlfriend probably knows something. that has happened before where the g/f helped the b/f murder his wife and took the child and lied to the cops about it all) and do something rash. just don't sit here and say it's because they are overweight, because this unfortunately happened to them but you don't know if this could happen to you, your neighbor or family member because of someone they date or marry. you just DON"T know. there are women who are beaten and murdered who are skinny, big, tall, short, white, black, etc. so it's NOT about race or SIZE. violence doesn't see color, so don't narrow it down to that.[/quote] Obviously Julia settled for a man...oops I mean a thug and look what happened. No this could not have happened to anyone. This does not happen to women who pick good men for their children. This is what happens to women when they pick the wrong men.[/quote] sake of argument: any women could pick a guy that doesn't exhibit sociopathic behavior, just masks it till something snaps and it comes out. case example: woman that was a neighbor to a family member of mine. great guy, wonderful father, 3 children. family seemed damn near perfect. one night the wife and husband had a fight, he pulls out a gun and aims for her head and threatens to kill her. YEARS and there was no sign of this type of behavior, he was a model citizen, father and husband. never thought it could happen to them. they were able to get out and away from him and have him arrested, but he threatened to kill her and the kids if she tried to leave him. We do know she and the kids are out of the state and doing fine. I do understand your point in this, but sometimes women pick men who are the good guys but they turn out... bad. when a woman picks a guy that flat out has red flags, wrap sheets, paper back books and cops following you every day, then your man is BAD FOR YOU. it's just that a woman like julia picked a bad guy, but she could have picked a good guy but was hiding this insanity from her. he could have been the greatest father to julian, but could harm that child in a heartbeat. there are good men out there this is very true, but still, there is a chance that this could happen to anyone, whether it be on this scale or the man just being stupid towards the woman and she just lets him go. but size and race aren't the main factors when this could have happened to a small framed white woman. that was all. but I do understand your position on this, not saying you are wrong or anything.[/quote] I hear u on that..sometimes there are flags...sometimes there aren't.

[quote comment="253759"][quote comment="253756"]I can not believe this has happened....I am also dissapointed by the lack of national media attention to this horrific crime...I have cruised the news channels and I have not seen any coverage of this tragedy....They can at least alert more peole that the child is missing and to keep an eye out for the truck....I hope anyone with information knows who to contact the proper authorities...[/quote] I saw some things about it when the story first broke. Still in all, you hear about Caylee Anthony everyday.[/quote] Yeah, but we all know what happened to Caylee....I don't know why they r playing games. I guess it's normal to hope, but the evidence told me otherwise! This is how a mother pleas for her child when she absolutley loves him/her...she is aching and will do any and everything to get them back. That's not how Caylee's mom has acted... I hope Julian is alive and well...I can't believe someone could really do something so heart wrenching...he couldn't kill himself, he had to kill her family and play with the life of her child. His due is coming...I hope swiftly. His momma saying her son is innocent...mmmm....

Whether the Hudsons were living in the hood, the burbs of Hollywood Hills, were fat or skinny, this could have happened anywhere in the US. Do we really know if Punk is gay? No!! And why bring the Knowles family into this? When were they labeled as the "cosby family perfect" status? Didn't Solange get married b/c she got knocked up as a teen and Beyonce marry an ex-thug???? Let's keep it real here. No one is immuned to these types of tragic acts!!! So yes, -do speak your mind- but don't sound so ignorant & narrow-minded doing so.

What the hell does that have to do with this little boy's whereabouts being unknown? Can you say no tact? Man. Anyway, yes it may have been a bad choice of a man but its not the right time.[/quote] Wow, I guess you are the judge and jury. Something tells me that it ain't so grand over in your parts, or are you one of those lonely chicks with a bunch of bitter time on her hands. We can all be the bomb in our minds when we are at the computer but does it translate in real life. Are you skinny, if you are i am sure you are one of those people who is and is butt ugly with an attitude to match. kick rocks loser!!!

You know what...I can't

You know what...I can't believe some of the crap I just read on here. Do you people not realize that Jennifer and her family have suffered tragic losses and a kidnapping. Some of you are just completely cruel and heartless...and I pray that God finds mercy on your soul.

I am praying for the family

I am praying for the family BUT I have to get this off my chest..... SOME of you people are so damn ignorant with the asinine statements you make; what does Julia's size in "picking" her "thug" have to do with the untimely deaths of her mother and brothers? REALLY PEOPLE? grow the hell up and stop judging because some of our fathers/husbands/boyfriends/brothers/sons have been to prison but does that make us a bad person??? Get your nose out the air......

Jennifer, I know words seems
