They say their "hearts are broken" and say they are "devastated that her life was cut short in this manner". "We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night's shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks", the couple said in a statement.

Hours later, Tamera tweeted, "We haven't found her yet".

Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley confirmed that her niece Alaina Housley was one of the 12 victims killed during the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting on Wednesday night.

Mowry-Housley had reported her niece missing on Twitter after Alaina's suitemate posted a plea for information regarding the 18-year-old Pepperdine student, her suitemate claiming that Alaina had been among "a handful of girls [who] went to line dance" at the bar, which was holding a college night when 28-year-old Ian David Long opened fire at around 11:20 p.m.

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".

Numerous victims' names have not been released.

Adam Housley immediately dashed to the nearest local hospital in search of information about Alaina Housley, but he was reportedly barred from entrance because the hospital is understandably on lockdown.

Ashley revealed that she had already been in touch with Adam, and there was nothing new to report at the time. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", he told the newspaper.

Tamera Mowry-Housley attends the 49th NAACP Image Awards at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on January 15, 2018 in Pasadena, California.

"Yes, all the other girls are safe", she responded to the actress.

EW has reached out to a representative for Mowry-Housley for comment. "Oh, Cody, I love you son".

Woke up shocked. Please pray.

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

"Alaina Housely, we are praying".

"She's an awesome girl", he added.
