Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, are searching for information about their niece following a deadly mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks, California bar Wednesday night.

The suitemate informed Mowry-Housely that she had already been in contact with Adam and that Alaina was the only one out of "a handful of girls [who] went to line dance" at Borderline Bar Wednesday night not accounted for.

"Our hearts are broken", the pair told The Hollywood Reporter about their niece's passing in a statement.

Housley added to ET that his wife Tamera Mowry-Housely is devastated following the news and his family will continue to mourn, but hope to celebrate her young life and kindness.

Tamera had earlier made a desperate plea for help via Twitter after a friend of Alaina's, named Ashley, posted a missing person tweet. When one asked what to pray for, he replied, "My niece".

The killer was identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former machine-gunner and decorated combat veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

The two had been going back and forth trying to find out anything they can about her whereabouts or status.

People comfort each other as they stand near the scene, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people on "college night".

He noted that his niece's Apple devices showed the bar's dance floor as her current location. We love u! If you know anything or any information please let us know.

Tamera responded to Ashley's tweet, informing her that she is Alaina's aunt and would like to know more about the situation. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said an investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear what motivated the attack.
