"The Real" host and "Sister, Sister" star Tamera Mowry-Housley is searching for information about her missing niece, who she said was at a Thousand Oaks, California, bar Wednesday night when a mass shooter opened fire.

"Our hearts are broken", the couple writes in an official statement to ABC News. "We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night's shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks", the statement to People Magazine said. "We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for our privacy at this time". "Oh, Cody, I love you son".

According to reports, Tamera's husband, Adam Housley tried to locate his niece at the Los Robles Regional Medical Center around 3:30 a.m. but was turned away because the facility was on lockdown.

Adam told The Times that his gut "is saying she's inside the bar, dead", but he later tweeted that he is "staying positive and praying and hoping and wishing there was more I could do". Two of her friends were able to escape by jumping through a broken window, they are now being treated at the hospital with severe injuries.


At least 12 people were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the country-western dance hall late Wednesday.

Housley told the Times: "She's an wonderful girl".

"Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley?" the actress wrote.

Housley's Apple Watch and iPhone showed her location at the bar until today but her family was hopeful she had left them there before fleeing.

Before news of Housley's death, Mowry-Housley's twin sister Tia Mowry posted to social media with pleas to find Alaina Housley. "Please do me a favor and introduce yourself in person and see what the result will be", Housley responded. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said an investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear what motivated the attack.
