Tamera's niece, Alaina Housley, was one of just a handful of girls who went line dancing Wednesday night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks. this according to a tweet sent by Alaina's friend who added Alaina was the only girl unaccounted for.
Mowry first responded to a tweet from her niece's suitemate, who said she was still missing after the shooting.
Tamera Mowry-Housley attends the 49th NAACP Image Awards at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on January 15, 2018 in Pasadena, California. "Can you please DM me your information?"
She responded to Mowry-Housley saying that she had already been in contact with her husband. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", Housley said at the time. I'm a lover of words, photography, books, travel, animals and The Ohio State Buckeyes.
The gunman, identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, opened fire during college night at a Thousand Oaks country music bar, killing 12 and sending hundreds fleeing before apparently taking his own life.
Housley told the Times: "She's an incredible girl". Also among the dozen people he killed, before winding up dead himself (possibly by suicide), was Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff's department who had confronted the gunman.
Tamera's twin sister Tia Mowry had earlier joined the search for Alaina and called for her safe return, posting on social media: 'Alaina Housely we are praying.
By late morning, the teen's Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dance floor, the uncle said.
"We haven't found her yet", Mowry-Housley wrote prior to learning her niece had died.
He later asked for prayers on Twitter, writing, "Staying positive and praying and hoping and wishing there was more I could do".
"Ashely this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley", Tamera replied. Please pray. Please pray. We love u! If you know anything or any information please let us know.
