Jennifer Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, has been missing since Friday and she is now offering a $100,000 reward for his safe return. Jennifer also posted a picture of Julian in the outfit he was last seen in on her MySpace page.
This past Friday, Jennifer’s mother and brother were fatally shot at their home in Chicago. Police believe that Julian was taken from the scene. Julian’s stepfather, William Balfour, is still in police custody and remains a person of interest. His family denies he had anything to do with the murders or Julian’s disappearance.
The FBI is now involved in the search for Julian. Jennifer’s rep issued this statement:
Jennifer and her family appreciate the enormous amount of love, support and prayers they have received while she and her family try to cope with this tragedy and continue the search for Julian. We ask that all inquiries be directed to the Chicago Police Department, Area 1 Detective Division at 312/747-8380.
