The couple has been frantically searching for their niece, Alaina Housley, who was inside the country-western bar when the gunfire erupted.

"The Real is heartbroken for the victims of the senseless tragedy in Thousand Oaks, which included Alaina Housley, the niece of Tamera and Adam Housley", the statement reads.

Actress Tamera Mowry's niece is one of the young women still missing in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Thousand Oaks bar.

"Our hearts are broken".

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".

The bar is popular among college students in the area.

The rampage killed at least 13 people, including a sheriff's sergeant, and injured multiple others.

"Staying positive and praying and hoping and wishing there was more I could do", Adam wrote on Twitter.

"We haven't found her yet", Mowry-Housley wrote prior to learning her niece had died.

Adam Housley is a former Fox News correspondent.

Alaina's Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dancefloor. "Can you please DM me your information?" the actress asked.

Just last month, Mowry-Housley gushed over her niece and how much she had grown as a person.

As the day continued, Housley said he feared the worst for his niece.

Tamera had earlier made a desperate plea for help via Twitter after a friend of Alaina's, named Ashley, posted a missing person tweet.

EW has reached out to a representative for Mowry-Housley for comment. "Please pray. I am numb", she posted.

The gunman, identified by authorities as former Marine Ian David Long, was also killed. "Thank you to Law Enforcement". "We send prayers and strength to all the victims' families and their community as well as our gratitude to the first responders".
