"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.

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.

"The Real" host responded to a tweet about a young woman's missing suite mate, writing, "Ashely this is her aunt Tamera Mowry-Housley". Can you please DM me your information?' The exchange is pretty heartbreaking. Do you know what hospitals she could be at?'

Ashley said that all the other girls she and Alaina were with were accounted for.

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. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", he told the newspaper.

"My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead".

The former Fox News correspondent has previously covered mass shootings in his career as a television reporter. "You just don't think that - same stupid quote - you just don't think it's going to happen to you". When one asked what to pray for, he replied, "My niece".

Housley tweeted about his niece early Thursday morning, asking his followers for prayers.

Ashley tweeted: '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 suspect, since identified as Ian David Long, was found dead at the scene. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said an investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear what motivated the attack. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims.
