Tamera Mowry's niece, Alaina, was one of more than 100 people at the Borderline Bar & Grill when a gunman opened fire on November 7, and now, the actress and her husband are frantically trying to locate her.

The suite mate tweeted she'd been in contact with "Adam", Mowry-Housley's husband, and that their niece, Alaina Housley, was the only one unaccounted for from a group of girls who had gone to the bar that night, where a gunman opened fire, killing 13 people.

Mowry reportedly responded to the above tweet, "Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley". Can you please DM me your information?' The exchange is pretty heartbreaking.

Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent, put a call out on social media Thursday after learning their niece, Pepperdine University freshman Alaina Housley, was out with friends at the Borderline Bar & Grill near Los Angeles.

"She's an incredible girl", he added. "I know you always hear those things". "It's been 7 hrs. since the shooting".

Mowry also shared an Instagram post of her, Tamera, and Alaina at Tamera's wedding, writing in the caption, "Alaina Housely we are praying".

Housley later asked for prayers on social media and said he was "staying positive and wishing there was more I could do".

It's believed Alaina is the daughter of one of his siblings.

Adam Housely indicated that he has a terrible feeling in his stomach because Alaina Housley's Apple watch and iPhone puts her location at the nightclub, but they have yet to hear from her, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ashley said that all the other girls she and Alaina were with were accounted for. Castillo reports that he was unable to get answers from medical staff because "a guard didn't let him through, saying it was on lockdown". Her Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dance floor. As they ran away from the bar, someone screamed "Hey! I'm hoping I'm wrong", he told the newspaper.
