"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.

Tamera's husband Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent, also asked his Twitter followers to pray for Alaina, pleading: "Please pray if you believe....pray, ' before later describing her as a 'beautiful soul".

The rampage killed at least 13 people, including a sheriff's sergeant, and injured multiple others.

"Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley". I know you always hear those things...

The two exchanged messages, with the talk show host inquiring whether Alaina was with suitemates who reportedly jumped through a broken window to flee the bar, suffering "major glass wounds". When one asked what to pray for, he replied, "My niece".

Mowry, 40, who came to fame with twin sister Tia Mowry via the 1990's sitcom "Sister, Sister", said niece, Alaina Housley, was among a group of college-age women who went dancing Wednesday night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, an upscale suburb of Los Angeles.


Tamera and Housley took to social media in an effort to locate their niece early Thursday morning. In an very bad twist, Adam Housley was one of the reporters on the ground who covered the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, according to CBS 2 anchor Peter Daut.

"My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead", Housley told the Los Angeles Times. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", Housley said at the time.

The publication also reported that Alaina's Apple Watch and iPhone both indicated that her location was still on the dance floor at the site of the shooting.

"She's an unbelievable girl", he added. "Please pray. I am numb", she wrote. "Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner".
