"Sister Sister" actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley have taken to social media to search for their niece, who was at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., when a gunman opened fire and killed 12 people and injured dozens more on Wednesday night.
"Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley". "Can you please DM me your information?" The exchange is pretty heartbreaking.
The suitemate then replied, saying she had already made contact with The Real and Sister, Sister star's husband and that there was "nothing new to report at the moment". "I know you always hear those things".
A Los Angeles Times reporter, Andrea Castillo, revealed that Adam, 46, had visited the Los Robles Regional Medical Center in hopes of finding Alaina, but was turned away for security reasons. "A guard didn't let him through, saying it was on lockdown", she tweeted. The latest he knew was that Alaina was at a bar with friends, with her Apple iPhone and watch still placing her location there.
Alaina's classmates told Housley they'd lost his niece in the chaos of the shooting.
"My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead". "I'm hoping I'm wrong".
This is the second mass shooting in the U.S.in less than two weeks. "You just don't think that - same stupid quote - you just don't think it's going to happen to you".
Tia Mowry, Mowry-Housley's twin sister, also asked for hope and prayer from her followers on social media.
Tamera responded on Twitter to one classmate, who wrote: "My suitemate is still missing, she is wearing denim shorts, a blue flannel and sneakers, pls let me know if you know anything #Borderline". On the night of the attack, the bar had its weekly College Country Night. The gunman, who was identified as 28-year-old David Ian Long, died on the scene.
Ventura County Sheriff's Deputy Ron Helus and 22-year-old Cody Coffman have also been confirmed victims of the shooting. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims.
