Tamera's husband Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent, also asked his Twitter followers to pray for Alaina, pleading: "Please pray if you believe....pray, ' before later describing her as a 'beautiful soul".
"The Real" co-host Tamera Mowry and her husband are terrified that a close family member may be among the victims of the mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks, California, nightclub that killed 12 people including a sheriff's deputy.
"Our hearts are broken", the couple writes in an official statement to ABC News. "We just learned that Alaina was one of the victims of last night's shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks", the statement read.
They called Alaina Housely "an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her". "We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for our privacy at this time".
Just hours earlier, the Sister, Sister alum contacted Alaina's college suitemate, Ashley, on Twitter.

Its shares soared following his comments but weeks later Mr Musk backed away from the plan, blaming feedback from shareholders. Musk and Tesla settled with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in September after the USA agency sued for fraud.
Unfortunately, it has been confirmed that Tamera's niece, Alaina Housley, was among the twelve people that lost their lives. I know you always hear those things... Her friends are now being treated at the hospital for glass wounds after escaping through a window.
Mowry first responded to a tweet from her niece's suitemate, who said she was still missing after the shooting.
According to Andrea Castillo, a Los Angeles Times reporter, Adam has been to the Los Robles Regional Medical Center to look for Alaina. The latest he knew was that Alaina was at a bar with friends, with her Apple iPhone and watch still placing her location there.
EW has reached out to a representative for Mowry-Housley for comment.
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 only victim who has been publicly identified is Ventura County Police Sergeant Ron Helus.
