Tamera Mowry: Actress Searches For Niece Missing In Thousand Oaks Shooting
As you’ve likely heard by now, another mass shooting (the 307th such incident in 2018 thus far) took place Wednesday night at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California.
The establishment was hosting an event geared toward college students.
13 are reported dead in the incident, including the shooter, who has been identified as a 28-year-old ex-Marine named David Ian Long.
At least 10 others were injured in the incident, and several that were in the bar Wednesday night remain unaccounted for, possibly because medical staff have been unable to identify them.
One of the missing patrons is Alaina Housley, the niece of Sister, Sister star Tamera Mowry and her husband, former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley.
Mowry and Housley received word that their niece was among the missing early this morning.
Immediately, they began to try and determine her whereabouts.
Mowry began combing social media, where she’s been in contact with Alaina’s roommate, a fellow college student identified only as Ashley.
“Ashely this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley. Can you please DM me your information?”
Mowry asked after the well-being of Alaina’s friends and was assured that all of the other girls had returned home safely.
“Yes, all the other girls are safe,” said Ashley, after revealing that she had no new information about Alaina.
“Woke up shocked. Please pray. Please pray. I am numb,” Mowry tweeted.
Housley, who has been checking in with area hospitals and police stations has also asked his Twitter followers to pray for his niece.
“Please pray if you believe….pray,” he tweeted, later referring to his niece as “a beautiful soul.”
Housley revealed that he was not allowed to search for his niece in the nearby Los Robles Hospital, as the facility was on a police lockdown.
He also tweeted that Alaina’s Apple Watch and iPhone revealed that her location as inside the bar at the time of the shooting.
“My gut is saying she’s inside the bar, dead,” he said.
“I’m hoping I’m wrong.”
This morning, Mowry updated fans with the sad news that Alaina still has not bee located.
“We haven’t found her yet,” the actress tweeted. “It’s been 7 hrs since the shooting.”
Our thoughts go out to Mowry and her entire family.
Here’s hoping that Alaina is found safe.
