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.

The niece of former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley and his wife, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, was killed in the California bar shooting on Wednesday, the couple confirmed in a statement.

A suitemate of the couple's niece, Alaina Housely, went on Twitter to say her friend was missing and offered a description of what she was wearing.

They called Alaina Housley "an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her".

The slain student was a freshman at Pepperdine University, according to The Hollywood Reporter.




The rampage killed at least 13 people, including a sheriff's sergeant, and injured multiple others. No one at the venue was armed. Police said there were about 60 people at the bar at the time of the shooting. "Her Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dance floor", Castillo wrote.

Adam told The Times that his gut "is saying she's inside the bar, dead", but he later tweeted that he is "staying positive and praying and hoping and wishing there was more I could do".

The gunman, who died at the scene, has now been identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old who served in the Marine Corps. "Can you please DM me your information?" the actress asked. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", he said. "I know you always hear those things". "Thank you to Law Enforcement".

EW has reached out to a representative for Mowry-Housley for comment.

Tamera's twin sister, Tia, also posted on social media to ask her followers for any updates.

After a Twitter user offered her prayers, Mowry responded saying, "We haven't found her yet".
