The FBI joined the search for the 7-year-old nephew of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson, still missing a day after the bodies of Hudson's mother and brother were found in the actress' childhood home.

A suspect in the deaths remained in custody Saturday, but young Julian King had not been seen since the bodies of Darnell Donerson, 57, and Jason Hudson, 29, were found Friday afternoon.

"We need to find that kid by sundown," Ziff Sistrunk, a friend of the Hudson family, said yesterday.

Because of the possibility the boy may have been taken across state lines, police spokesman John Mirabelli said the FBI has been asked to assist in the search. FBI spokesman Ross Rice confirmed the agency was helping to look for the child, but he declined to provide details.

Neighbors, friends and relatives gathered Saturday outside the three-story white house on the city's South Side where Hudson went to school and sang in church. Some left stuffed animals and flowers, and others planned a search for Julian.

Members of Hudson's family were expected to make a statement yesterday.

A family member entering Donerson's home Friday afternoon found her shot on the living room floor. Officers later found Hudson shot in the bedroom, police said.

At least one of the victims suffered defensive wounds, said authorities who described the shooting as domestic violence.

The Cook County medical examiner's office said Saturday that Donerson and Jason Hudson died of gunshot wounds.
